Background:Use of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) to assess health-related quality of life in clinical practice, research studies, and clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) remains an ongoing area of research. SF-36 is commonly used in RA trials but is not feasible for routine use in clinical practice settings. ThePatientReportedOutcomesMeasurementInformationSystem (PROMIS) may address this gap but has not been widely assessed in RA patients starting therapy in a real-world comparative

RA patients were enrolled when initiating TNFi treatment. Treatment decisions were made by treating rheumatologists. We report baseline PROMIS-29 (7 domains and pain intensity), PROMIS Pain Interference (PI) Short Form (SF) 6b (PI6b) and PROMIS Fatigue (F) Short Form 7a (F7a), domain T-Scores, and SF-36 subdomain and Component Scores (CS) in AWARE patients. Here we report baseline data obtained from the final 1-year AWARE dataset. Correlations between PROMIS measures and comparable SF-36 component scores were calculated using Pearson correlations. Data is shown as mean ± standard deviation (SD).Results:At baseline, mean CDAI of all patients (n=1262) was 32.3±15.6, with 70.4% in high disease activity (HDA, CDAI>22), 22.8% in moderate disease activity (MDA, CDAI: >10 and ≤22), 6.1% in low disease activity (LDA, CDAI: >2.8 and ≤10), and 0.7% in remission (CDAI ≤2.8). Mean PROMIS scores were >0.5 SD worse than population means for Physical Function (PF, 38.1±6.84), PI (63.4±7.68), F (58.8±9.95), Sleep Disturbance (55.1±8.68); and Ability to Participate in Social Roles/Activities (PSRA, 43.4±8.58). Baseline Depression and Anxiety were within 0.5 SD of population T-scores. PI6b, F7a, and P29 domain T-scores correlated with the comparable SF-36 subdomain and component scores (r's >0.58), except sleep for which no comparable SF-36 element was applicable. Examples include: P6b (r=-0.80) and P29-PI (0.81) with SF-36 Bodily Pain; F7a (-0.77) and P29-F (-0.77) with SF-36 Vitality; P29-PF with SF-36 PF (0.77), Role-Physical (0.69), and Physical CS (0.73); P29 Anxiety with SF-36 Mental Health (-0.72), Role-Emotional (-0.56), Mental CS (-0.70); and P29-PRSA with SF-36-Social Functioning (0.71). Mean PROMIS-29 T-scores (except Anxiety and Sleep Disturbance) among patients with HDA were significantly different from patients with MDA, LDA or remission (p < 0.001 for all). Further, mean PROMIS T-scores of PF, F, PSRA, PI, Pain Intensity, PI6b and P7a among patients with MDA were significantly different from patients with more or less active RA (by CDAI category).Conclusion:Analysis of baseline results from a large cohort of RA patients indicates high correlations between individual P29 domain T-scores and SF-36 component scores, as well as categorical CDAI, providing strong evidence of PROMIS construct validity in a real-world population of RA patients.Disclosure of Interests:Clifton Bingham Grant/research support from: Bristol-Myers Squibb, Consultant of: Bristol-Myers Squibb, Shelly Kafka Employee of: Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC, Shawn Black Employee of: Janssen Research & Development, LLC, Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC, Stephen Xu Employee of: Janssen Research & Development, LLC, Wayne Langholff Employee of: Janssen Research & Development, LLC, Jeffrey Curtis Grant/research support from: AbbVie, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Corrona, Janssen, Lilly, Myriad, Pfizer, Regeneron, Roche, UCB, Consultant of: AbbVie, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Corrona, Janssen, Lilly, Myriad, Pfizer, Regeneron, Roche, UCB
