I took a cyclic citrullinated peptide IgG abs and the results were > 250h to the 4th power. What does this mean?

In brief: 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.
