Researchers from Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX) and other institutions found that elevated blood-serum levels of the 14-3-3eta protein outperformed conventional antibody-serum testing, including rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-citrullinated peptide antibodies (ACPA, also known as antibodies to cyclic citrullinated peptides or CCP), for the identification of RA.

Not only has a need for a better classification of RA been identified, but it is apparent that the 'early' diagnosis of RA has a positive impact on the well-being and prognosis of the patient, with rheumatologists having become more reliant on serological markers such as RF and cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies (anti-CCP) than on the ACR criteria of 1987.
Rheumatoid factor and antibodies to cyclic citrullinated peptide differentiate rheumatoid arthritis from undifferentiated polyarthritis in patients with early arthritis.
Antibodies against cyclic citrullinated peptide and IgA rheumatoid factor predict the development of rheumatoid arthritis.
The Anti-CCP2 assay is an ELISA which detects autoantibodies against second generation cyclic citrullinated peptides in human serum or plasma (CCP2).
