Abstract

The optimal definition of clinical remission in juvenile idiopathic arthritis is still uncertain. A new study has found that the current criteria for clinically inactive disease do not always identify the same group of patients. Why is there such a discrepancy? And which approach to defining remission is the most advantageous?
