Abstract

Objective It has been found that women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have a poorer prognosis than men. However, the impact of age at symptom onset is unclear. We investigated the relationship between these factors and functional disability in patients with recent-onset inflammatory polyarthritis (IP).

Functional disability was assessed using the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), adjusted for age at HAQ completion. Linear random-effects models were used to examine HAQ score over time, by sex and age at symptom onset (early = age
