Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints, but can affect other parts of the body. Research has not found what causes or triggers RA. However, there are risk factors that increase the chance of someone having this condition, such as specific genes, smoking, and obesity. Other risk factors include being an older adult and female.
Diagnosing and managing RA involves clinical evaluation by a rheumatologist, as well as laboratory tests.
Anticyclic Citrullinated Peptide (Anti-CCP)
The anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibody is a diagnostic biomarker of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The higher the levels of anti-CCP antibody, the more likely it is to suggest RA.
