CCP Antibody Test in Lucknow
The CCP Antibody test is basically used to diagnose Rheumatoid Arthritis or to monitor treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. The test also helps distinguish between Rheumatoid Arthritis and other types of Arthritis.
This test helps in early identification of Rheumatoid Arthritis and helps distinguish from other types of Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis may progress both slowly or rapidly and hence early diagnosis can help improve the quality of life in patients. Any delay in diagnosis of treatment may result in the patient losing mobility and reduced lifespan.
Symptoms such as pain, inflammation, stiffness and losing mobility in the hands, feet and other joints in the body are characteristic of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Your doctor may order this test for you along with the Rheumatoid Factor test to make a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
The full form of CCP Antibodies is Cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies. These autoantibodies are produced by the immune system. Citrulline is a produced in the body and occurs naturally and this is seen at a higher rate in joints of RA patients. This higher conversion triggers an immune response against the proteins in the joints. It is important to start treatment basis accurate diagnosis to prevent irreversible damage to the joints. Treatment helps minimise the complications that arise out of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
