Within subject biological variation of CRP and of quantities in patients with stable rheumatoid arthritis
Twelve patients (six males and six females) had blood samples taken every week for eight weeks for estimatione of within subject biological variation
Knowledge of within subject biological variation is important when monitoring disease activity by biochemical quantities in order to evaluate the chance whether an observed difference in results over time might be due to random variations or must be considered a "real" change.
Description of the cohort
Twelve patients (six males and six females) with stable rheumatoid arthritis.
Data and biological material
Fasting blood samples were drawn once a week for eight weeks
