    Stratifies severity of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) using clinical and laboratory data, specifically ESR.

    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    Other than ESR, all values are self-reported by the patient and therefore subjective.

    • The ASDAS-CRP is the preferred disease activity index according to the Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society (ASAS), but the ASDAS-ESR may be used as an alternate.

    • May be useful for trending disease activity over time.
