Frequently Asked Questions About Anti CCP Test
What is Anti CCP?
Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide is the full form of Anti-CCP. It is an antibody produced by our body due to the autoimmune disorder.
The Anti CCP Antibody targets a specific protein called citrullinated protein that is found in the tissues of people’s joints. This causes the inflammatory symptoms that are most commonly seen in rheumatoid arthritis. Almost 60% to 70% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis have the presence of Anti CCP Antibodies.
What is the cause of Anti CCP?
It is believed that Anti CCP is caused by the combination of genetic and environmental factors. A common sequence of amino acids called shared epitope is found in the rheumatoid arthritis patient’s caused by Anti CCP Antibodies.
The shared epitope is encoded with a specific marker called HLA. The proteins produced by HLA is responsible for the control of immune responses in our body. The shared epitope attached to these proteins causes anti CCP antibodies.
The patients with shared epitope develop anti CCP antibodies due to lung inflammation caused by smoking. But the specific cause of developing anti CCP is still unknown.
Why is an Anti CCP Test done?
The anti CCP test looks for the presence of the antibodies causing damage to the tissues in our body. This test is done to detect rheumatoid arthritis at an early stage.
It is a supporting tool for doctors to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. Your doctor may ask you to take the test if you develop any of the following symptoms
- Pain in joint
- Swelling in joints
- Pain in hand when holding objects
- Joint stiffness
- Joint function loss
How to prepare for the test?
The anti CCP test is a simple blood test. No special preparation required for the test.
What is the procedure of Anti CCP test?
It is similar to any other blood test. A nurse will put an elastic band around your arm to make your vein visible. The area where the blood is drawn will be cleaned with a disinfectant liquid.
A needle will be injected in the vein to draw the blood sample. You will be asked to put some pressure on the area from where the blood is drawn after removing the needle.
What does Anti CCP result mean?
If the Anti CCP test result is positive, then it does not always lead to rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis. A patient with rheumatoid arthritis symptoms whose test results are negative may also develop rheumatoid arthritis in the future. Several other criteria should be met, in order to decide the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
Your doctor may sometimes ask you to take a rheumatoid arthritis factor test along with the Anti CCP test. The other imaging tests may also be done to look for bone and cartilage deterioration around the affected joints.
