What is axSpA?
axSpA is mainly characterised by inflammatory back pain, as well as involvement of the spine and sacroiliac joints. It also includes patients with:
- definite radiographic sacroiliitis observed on x-ray and meeting the modified New York (mNY) criteria, classified as having ankylosing spondylitis (AS); and
- patients without definite sacroiliitis detectable by radiography and not meeting mNY criteria, classified as having non-radiographic axSpA (nr-axSpA).1
axSpA is associated with a decrease in quality of life, work productivity and the burden of pain, fatigue and morning stiffness.1
