The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical remission and MDA in PsA patients who started TNF-inhibitors (TNFi) treatment with a 2-year follow-up. Concomitant therapies as well as comorbidities were assessed. Level of concordance of clinimetric indices and the potential predictive factors of remission/MDA were also evaluated. Clinical and laboratory evaluations were prospectively performed in PsA patients at baseline (T0) and after 22 (T22), 54 (T54), and 102 (T102) weeks of treatment. Disease activity and disability were assessed using DAS28, CPDAI, DAPSA, MDA, and HAQ-SpA. The Pearson correlation coefficient, univariate, and multivariate binary logistic regression were performed. A total of 221 PsA patients were included. Cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome (MetS) resulted as the most frequent comorbidities. Clinical remission was achieved by over a half of the patients during the follow-up. Use of concomitant therapies, such as csDMARDs and steroids, was significantly reduced during the follow-up. Agreement among indices of treatment targets by k-statistics was excellent for CPDAI and DAPSA and good for MDA and DAS28 or DAPSA. Female sex and MetS resulted as negative prognostic factors of clinical remission and MDA at all the time points. TNFi are highly effective in achieving treatment targets in PsA patients. DAS28, CPDAI, DAPSA, and MDA show a good agreement. Female sex and MetS are associated with a lower probability to achieve remission in PsA patients.
