Rheumatoid factor is an autoantibody, an immunoglobulin M protein that is produced by the body’s immune system. Autoantibodies attack a person’s own tissues mistakenly identifying the tissue as “foreign”. While the biologic role of RF isn't well understood, its presence is beneficial as an indicator of inflammatory and autoimmune activity. RF in the blood is detected by this test. This test is a valuable test for helping to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. 80% of these with RA will have a positive RF test. However, RF can also be detected in people with various other disorders. Some of these disorders include Sjogren syndrome, as well as persistent bacterial, viral an parasitic infections and certain cancers. It may sometimes be seen in those with lung disease, liver disease and kidney disease and it can be found in a small percentage of healthy people
Reference Values Of Arthritis Profile Test- Rheumatoid Arthritis
The normal reference range for RF is less than 15 IU/mL or less than 1:16.
A negative RF test doesn't rule out RA. About 20% of individuals with RA will have very low levels of or no detectable RF. In these cases, a CCP antibody test could also be positive and can be used to confirm RA.
Positive RF test results may also be seen in 1-5% of healthy people and in some people with conditions such as: Sjogren syndrome, scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), sarcoidosis, endocarditis, tuberculosis, syphilis, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, infectious mononucleosis, cancers such as leukaemia and multiple myeloma, parasitic infection, or disease of the liver, lung, or kidney. The RF test isn't used to diagnose or monitor these other conditions.
