Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) experience symptoms and comorbidities that impact their health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and ability to work. This real-world, global survey was conducted among AS patients receiving tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFis) to evaluate both the frequency and severity of persistent symptoms, and the impact of pain and fatigue on HRQoL, employment status, and work activity.
