  Purpose

For public health purposes disability is becoming increasingly important as an outcome measure. Despite this, there are few data on the effectiveness of adalimumab on disability outcomes in patients with Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Diseases (IMIDs), particularly in the Phase IV setting. There are even less data available in New Zealand, which did not have the opportunity to participate to a major extent in large, multinational, Phase III pivotal studies of adalimumab in IMIDs.

The World Health Organisation Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) 2.0 is a simple, validated, free and easy-to-use generic assessment instrument for health and disability. It is applicable across cultures, in all adult populations. It is a responsive measure that can show what difference a treatment makes.

Results from study of effect of adalimumab on WHODAS scores and other Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) of work activity and well-being will be of interest to a variety of stakeholders in the healthcare system including patients, healthcare practitioners and payers.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) 2.0 response score [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The WHODAS is a simple, validated, free and easy-to-use generic assessment instrument for health and disability. It is applicable across cultures, in all adult populations. It is a responsive measure that can show what difference a treatment makes.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in total WHODAS 2.0 score in adalimumab responder and non-responders population [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    Total WHODAS 2.0 score is assessed at 6 months after the initiation of adalimumab, in those patients continuing on adalimumab (responder population), compared with those patients not continuing on adalimumab (non-responders).

  • Change in Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire: General Health (WPAI:GH) V2.0 score [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    This questionnaire looks at the effect of health problems on ability to work and perform regular activities

  • Change in Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K10) [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The K10 is intended to yield a global measure of distress based on questions about anxiety and depressive symptoms that a person has experienced in the most recent 4 week period.

  • Change in Flourishing Scale [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The Flourishing Scale consists of 8 items describing important aspects of human functioning ranging from positive relationships, to feelings of competence, to having meaning and purpose in life.

  • Change in Subject Vitality Scale [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The Subject Vitality Scale evaluates the state of feeling alive and alert -- to having energy available to the self.

  • Change in Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) score in patients with rheumatoid arthritis [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The HAQ-DI was developed as a comprehensive measure of functional status in patients with a wide variety of rheumatic diseases.

  • Change in Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ) score in patients with Crohn's disease [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The SIBDQ is a simple, validated, 10 item questionnaire, taken from the original 32 question IBDQ, that can be easily scored and interpreted by clinicians.

  • Change in Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) score [ Time Frame: From month 0 to 6 ]
    The DLQI is the most frequently used instrument in studies of randomised controlled trials in dermatology.
