German Spondyloarthritis Inception Cohort
German Spondyloarthritis Inception Cohort
The German Spondyloarthritis Inception cohort (GESPIC) was started as a prospective, longitudinal, multicentre, nationwide study in Germany on patients with early SpA including ankylosing spondylitis and non-radiographic axial SpA. The objectives of GESPIC are to learn about the course of AS and other SpA during the very early stage of the disease, to appropriately assess the outcome including radiographic progression of patients after several years of follow-up, to identify outcome predictors, to assess quality of life, function, and costs (direct and indirect costs).

Probability Sample
Patients included in GESPIC are required to have a definite clinical diagnosis of axial SpA / juvenile SpA (currently only adult patients with radiographic axial SpA = ankylosing spondylitis - AS are recruited) or a definite diagnosis of Crohn's disease.

  • Juvenile spondyloarthritis
    Patients with juvenile spondyloarthritis (juvenile ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile non-AS-spondyloarthritis).
