Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP), IgG antibodies are present in 69-83 percent of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and have specificities of 93-95 percent. These autoantibodies may be present in the preclinical phase of disease, are associated with future RA development, and may predict radiographic joint destruction. Patients with weak positive results should be monitored and testing repeated.

Please note: dsDNA Ab reference range changed as of 07/17/2017. CCP3 reference range changed as of 8/14/2017.
