Abstract:

Serum samples were collected from 110 Iraqi patients suffering from joints disorders, 44 of them were RF positive results, 16 (%36.4) out of them had positive anti-CCP and 28 (63.6%) had negative results for anti-CCP. In this study it is concluded that not all patients with positive RF have positive anti-CCP results, which means that they may have any rheumatoid inflammation other than rheumatoid arthritis.


Keywords: Anti-CCP antibody, Rheumatoid factor, Rheumatoid arthritis.
