Meta-analysis: diagnostic accuracy of anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody and rheumatoid factor for rheumatoid arthritis.
Multivariate analysis revealed that the strongest predictor of RA development was a positive titer of anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) at presentation, with an odds ratio of 73.
Such research led to the development of the anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) assay, which detects the presence of anti-citrullinated peptide autoantibodies found in the serum of many patients with RA.
