ANTI CCP ANTIBODIES
Anti-CCP, anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody, is used to confirm a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
The presence of Anti-CCP Antibodies has been detected up to 10 years before the first Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms are noted making the early treatment of the condition more effective and can avoid long term joint damage.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a common, chronic, autoimmune disease occurring in 1-2% of the world-wide population.
The damaging effects of rheumatoid arthritis are characterised by the inflammation of the joints and like many autoimmune diseases it occurs more frequently in females than males.
The importance of being able to differentiate between Rheumatoid Arthritis and other forms of joint and connective tissue disease is important. Anti-CCP Antibodies are present very early in Rheumatoid Arthritis and appear to have a high value in determining whether the disease is non-joint erosive or erosive.

Mrs Buckley - Suffolk
“I am just writing to say what excellent service I have received in relation to the Vit D test I ordered. I phoned to ask about using Recorded Delivery and had a really warm, friendly and informed and professional response from a very, very nice lady who took the call. There wasn't a lengthy and frustrating "press Number "-" for . . . " to go through before my call was answered and I didn't have to wait in a queue for my call to be answered and once answered I didn't feel "rushed" at all during the call. This morning I received an email to say my results were available online and I was also called to be told my results by the same really nice woman I spoke with yesterday as she said she recognised my Results and wanted to reassure me as quickly as possible given the trouble I had had getting enough blood to fill the phial and knowing I was dreading having to possibly redo the test. I can't speak highly enough of the service.”

I would recommend your company to anyone for the courteous, friendly, proffesional and considerate way you deal with clients, I will definitely come back to you if I need any further help with concerns about health issues.
