What is Anti CCP Antibodies Lab Test ?

Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (#antiCCP) antibody testing is useful in the diagnosis of #RheumatoidArthritis, with high specificity, 

It is presence early in the disease process, so helps in early diagnosis of RA.

Positive lab test result of AntiCCP  identifies patients who are likely to have severe disease and irreversible damage. 

However, its sensitivity is low, and a negative result does not exclude disease. 

Anti-CCP antibodies have not been found at a significant frequency in other diseases to date, and are more specific than #RheumatoidFactor or RA Factor #LabTest for detecting rheumatoid arthritis.
