This test is used to detect the presence of CCP antibodies. The CCP antibodies are autoantibodies produced by the immune system. This test may also be ordered to help evaluate the development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in people with undifferentiated arthritis. About 90% of people with a positive CCP antibodies generation will lead RA in the future. The symptoms for this disease include painful or swollen joints, fatigue, fever and development of nodules under the skin (especially the elbows).
