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.
