ACR score for rheumatoid arthritis
Different degrees of improvement are referred to as ACR20, ACR50, ACR70. The ACR score is more often used in clinical trials than in doctor patient-relationships, as it allows a 'common standard' between researchers.
The 2010 ACR / EULAR Rheumatoid Arthritis Classification Criteria, which includes anti-CCP testing, has been developed to focus on early disease, and on features that are associated with persistent or erosive disease.
