Depression indicators predict work disabilty more than disease activity or response to therapy
Date:6/13/2013

Madrid, Spain, 13 June 2013: Data presented today at EULAR 2013, the Annual Congress of the European League Against Rheumatism, demonstrate that indicators of depression are stronger predictors of work disability in early arthritis than disease activity or response to therapy.

Musculoskeletal diseases affect at least 100 million people in Europe, accounting for one half of all European absences from work and 60% of work incapacity. If inadequately managed, they represent a significant economic burden on European society, estimated to be up to 2% of GDP.2

573 patients <63 years enrolled in an early inflammatory arthritis (IA) cohort (<6 months) were analysed with respect to their decision to request disability pension within the first 12 months of treatment. Patient reported parameters included pain, morning stiffness, fatigue, functional capacity, and the depression statement "having little pleasure or interest in doing things most of the day.

Patients had symptom duration of 13 +7 weeks, 67% were rheumatoid factor (RF) and/or anti-citrull
