(a) ACR (American College of Rheumatology) response scores measure

improvement in the tender and swollen joint count and also include

assessment of the following five parameters: patient's global

assessment, physician's global assessment, patient's assessment of

pain, degree of disability, and level of acute-phase reactant. ACR20

is achieved when there is 20% improvement in the tender and swollen

joint count as well as a 20% improvement in at least three of the five

parameters. ACR50 & ACR70 are an extension of these criteria

corresponding to a 50% and 70% improvement respectively.(1)

(b) Modified Total Sharp Scores (mTSS) is a measurement used to assess

changes in bone erosion and joint-space narrowing measured by X-ray. A

smaller change in mTSS reflects less progression of joint damage.(2)
