Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) is a commonly used grading system to measure the severity of Crohn disease. Harvey-Bradshaw Index (HBI) is created as a simplified version of CDAI.
0-149 points: Asymptomatic remission
150-220 points: Mildly to moderately active Crohn's disease
221-450 points: Moderately to severely active Crohn's disease
451-1100 points: Severely active to fulminant disease
A Harvey-Bradshaw Index of less than 5 correlates with clinical remission.
