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


axSpA, axial spondyloarthritis; Pso, psoriasis; mNY, modified New York.
