What is
rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints. It is a long-term condition that commonly affects the hands, feet, and wrists. Flare-ups or flares describe periods where your symptoms become worse.


What are
CCP antibodies?

Anti-CCP antibodies, or anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies, target certain proteins in the body for destruction.


What can I learn
from this test?

Our cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (CCP) test detects the presence of anti-citrulline antibodies in your blood. CCP antibodies are much more specific for diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), meaning that if present they are more likely to indicate the presence of RA. With this specific test, you can distinguish rheumatoid arthritis from other types of arthritis.
