My wife 48 has raised anti ccp antibody reading is 21. what does it mean please?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the level of the antibody in your wife is barely above normal and may not be clinically relevant. In general, it is a marker of rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Antibody (Definition)

I assume that you mean rheumatoid factor. Rf.This test is sometimes sent when the patient describes joint pain. It needs to be interpreted in the context of the patients symptoms because sometimes a positive test is meaningless or associated with a disease such as rheumatoid arthritis. The ccp test is more specific for rheumatoid arthritis than the rf. Both ...Read more

Rheumatoid factors are passe, and frequently false positive. The "ccp" antibody is more definitive! what does that mean?

Both are useful: Most rheumatologists find both tests useful; rf is not "passe." rf is not specific for ra, meaning most patients with RA have an abnormal rf, but many people with abnormal rf do not have RA (false positive). E.G., hepatitis c infection can cause an abnormal rf without ra. In contrast, antibodies to ccp are more specific, so almost everyone with abnormal ccp will have or develop ra. ...Read more

I have questions about join problem. “anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide” test. Result is “anti ccp = 110 and ul ml=0.5” informed me is this critical?

I have questions about join problem. “anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide” test. Result is “anti ccp = 110 and ul ml=0.5” informed me is this critical?

Anti-CCP test: This test is often done at the same time as a rheumatoid factor (rf) for rheumatoid arthritis. A value greater than 60 elisa units is "strongly positive". This result suggest you should be under the care of a rheumatologist to confirm/reject this diagnosis & to treat you if the DX is correct. The ui ml= 0.5 is confusing, unless the results were in spanish or other non-english language. ...Read more

I tested and have a cyclic citrullinated peptide (ccp) ab (igg) >250 units and RA latex Turbid 170.7 IU/mL. and ANA direct negative. what r results?

Rheumatoid arthritis: Your tests are strongly suggesting rheumatoid arthritis. I do not know the range for RA latex for that specific lab, but if you have symptoms consistent with rheumatoid arthritis you most likely have rheumatoid arthritis. Talk to your doctor about the results and the benefits of a rheumatology consult. ...Read more
