Positive RF: 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 tests are often sent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
