Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an autoimmune disease with high disability rate, and it is sometimes difficult to distinguish from generalized osteoarthritis (GOA). Deoxyribonuclease 1-like 3 (DNASE1L3) was associated with a variety of autoimmune diseases. However, the serum DNASE1L3 level in AS and GOA remain unreported. Herein, this study was designed to gauge serum DNASE1L3 level in patients with AS and GOA, and to discern the utility of serum DNASE1L3 as a biomarker for assessing the severity of patients with AS.
