ReACCh-Out (Research in Arthritis in Canadian Children Emphasizing Outcomes Study) is an ongoing Canadian, multicenter, prospective, cohort study of patients with new-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). This first report of the study examined predictors of inactive disease at 6 months after diagnosis, and found that these included JIA subtype as well as multiple other baseline clinical measures.
