Understanding Anti-CCP Antibody in Ghaziabad


What is Anti-CCP Antibody in Ghaziabad?

An Anti-CCP Antibody test diagnoses rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and differentiates it from other types of arthritis. It detects the presence of anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (Anti-CCP) antibodies in the blood, which are associated with autoimmune diseases, particularly rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and are often present in the early stages of the disease.

What does Anti-CCP Antibody measure?

An Anti-CCP Antibody test measures the presence of antibodies against cyclic citrullinated peptides (CCP) in the blood. These antibodies are collectively referred to as anti-CCP antibodies. Citrullination is a process where the amino acid arginine is converted to citrulline. In autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the immune system may mistakenly identify citrullinated peptides as foreign invaders and produce antibodies against them.

Anti-CCP antibodies are considered one of the early markers of rheumatoid arthritis. They contribute to the chronic inflammation and joint damage characteristic of RA. Their presence in the blood can aid in the early diagnosis of RA, establish a prognosis for disease progression, and allow timely intervention and management.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Anti-CCP Antibody in Ghaziabad


Frequently Asked Questions about Anti-CCP Antibody in Ghaziabad

Q. Is there any preparation required before an Anti-CCP Antibody test?

Inform the doctor about the medications you may be taking. No other specific preparations are usually required before this test.

Q. Is there any risk associated with an Anti-CCP Antibody test?

No, there is no risk associated with an Anti-CCP Antibody test. However, since this test involves a needle prick to withdraw the blood sample, in very rare cases, a patient may experience increased bleeding, hematoma formation (blood collection under the skin), bruising or infection at the site of needle prick.

Q. What is citrulline?

During inflammation, arginine amino acid residues can be enzymatically converted into citrulline residues in proteins, such as vimentin, by a process called citrullination. Its production occurs during the metabolism of the amino acid arginine. It will change the structure of the protein which can trigger an immune response that produces autoantibodies against proteins in the joints.

Q. What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disease which is chronic (from a long time). It causes inflammation, stiffness, pain and disastrous changes in joints of the body. It can occur at any age but the usual age is after 40 years. As compared to men, women are more affected. It can progress slow or fast. But, if untreated can cause disability of the joints.

Q. What are other tests advised for rheumatoid arthritis?

Apart from anti CCP antibody test, rheumatoid factor (RF) test, joint X rays, and blood tests are advised. If a patient has positive anti CCP antibody test as well as RF test it indicates that the patient has rheumatoid arthritis. If the patient has a positive anti CCP antibody test but negative RF test it means that the patient is likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis in the future. If anti CCP antibody test is negative but RF test is positive, it can indicate that the patient should be analyzed for other inflammatory conditions as well.

Q. Is an Anti-CCP Antibody test screening test for rheumatoid arthritis?

No, the screening test for rheumatoid arthritis is the rheumatoid factor. But, once the RF is positive, an Anti-CCP Antibody test should be done to differentiate rheumatoid arthritis from other arthritis.
