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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I took a cyclic citrullinated peptide IgG abs and the results were > 250h to the 4th power. What does this mean?
A newer test for RA: A positive result for cyclic citrullinated peptide (ccp) antibodies indicates a high likelihood of rheumatoid arthritis (ra). Results are usually reported in units with a value of >40 units considered positive. I'm not familiar with the scale that was used on your test. If its positive that's a strong sign that you have ra. ...Read more
Anti cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody value 0.58. Sensitivity of method 68% and specificity 92%. .. What does it indicate?
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?
POSSIBLY: We use that test in the workup of patients with inflammatory arthritis. A positive ccp antibody which you are describing is quite suggestive of rheumatoid arthritis. The level does not always suggest how bad a disease is. The 110 value is elevated but I have definitely seen higher values with minimal arthritis and patients with lower values have a more severe disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My test was negative for anti nuclear antibody and 40 u/ml for cyclic citrullinated peptide. Does this mean I have ra?
See below: RA is not diagnosed by tests alone. Normal people can have positive tests and people with RA can have confusing tests. Diagnosis and treatment is based on a careful history and physical, x_rays and laboratory tests. All are necessary. ...Read more

Mostly, yes.: This flourescent microscopy assay uses the microsomal fraction of adult s. Mansoni worms (mama) as antigen, and is thus highly specific (99%) and sensitive (96%) for detection of infection caused by s. Mansoni. Although the assay is also highly specific for infections caused by other schistosoma species (s. Japonicum, s. Haematobium, s. Mekongi), its sensitivity for these infections is lower (55%). ...Read more
My ccp ab, IgG was 221 what would be the safest treatment to go on? Will it bring that number down?
It depends on other: It depends on other tests and your exam. The ccp antibody is seen with rheumatoid. Your rheumatologist will interpret this in conjunction with lab findings. Also your x-rays will determine what medication you will go on as well your medical history. The number that we would want to reduce instead of the ccp is any elevated levels of inflammation such sed rate and crp. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Hi, How many weeks do I have to wait to get tested for EBV with EBV VCA IGG AB for a more accurate results from a recent exposure?
A week: The viral capsid VCA IGM is most sensitive and specific for acute infection. It becomes positive in a week, and goes away in 4 to 6 weeks. ...Read more
What is candida ab IgG and how is it contracted? What are the symptoms of candida ab igg? And how do you treat it? What is the prognosis?
Candida spp.: Candida is a yeast-like fungus. The antibody (Ab) to this is formed by elements of your immune system and the particular antibody to which you are referring is an immunoglobulin G (IgG). This is not a disease and these results alone don't need treatment. Discuss this with the doctor who ordered the test. Best wishes. ...Read more

No antibodies: If you have not received the pneumococcal vaccine then you have probably not been infected with any of these strains of pneumococcus, a gram positive bacteria that causes pneumonia, sinus & ear infections & meningitis. If you have received the vaccine & these values represent antibody levels obtained 4-6 weeks later then you have hypogammaglobulinemia. Probably cvid.

No test is perfect: H.pylori is a organism that promotes ulcers. Your negative serum test implies an absence of protective antibodies, presumably due to lack of exposure or infection. Of course, a "false negative" result occurs with all testing. There are many ways to test for H.pylori so if you have risk factors, exposures, or high suspicion of infection get a confirmatory study. ...Read more
