Abstract

The Subcommittee members initially agreed on the concepts of disease activity, damage and severity, defining severity as the total effect of disease on organ function. It was decided to start with the assessment of severity using the Medsger's severity scale. A revised version of this scale was constructed. The rationale for the exclusion of other variables was provided.
