CCP IgG Antibody Dot Filtration Assay Kit
CCP IgG Dot test kit is a rapid immunoassay as an aid in the diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis illness.
Anti-CCP IgG antibody Dot Assay kit is an quick point-of-care test kit for the detection of IgG antibody specific to Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (CCP) in human serum sample, which is intended to be used as a tool for the diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Why CCP IgG Test Important
The earlier the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, the sooner targeted treatments can be initiated, thus severe damages to the joints can be avoided or controlled. Even for those patients diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis by physical examination, clinical symptoms and other blood test result, if the CCP IgG blood test result is negative, the concentration of this autoantibody may increase in later stages of the disease. So, for the CCP IgM negative patients, the test for CCP antibody will be performed regularly during the treatment of the disease.
CCP Antibody and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Antibody (CCP Ab) is an autoantibody present in the blood of about 70% of the rheumatoid arthritis patients. Comparing with other dot filtration blood assay kits for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, a positive CCP IgG antibody test is considered highly specific to rheumatoid arthritis.
