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
