Name: Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Ab, IgG, reflex to Rheumatoid Factor
Test Name: Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Ab IgG, reflex to Rheumatoid Factor
Health Link Test Code: CCPR
LIS Test Code: CCPR
CPT Code(s): 86200; 86431 if Rheumatoid Factor is reflexed
Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Ab, IgG; If CCP IgG is >19 Rheumatoid Factor will be performed.
Methodology: Enzyme Immunoassay
Studies have shown that detection of antibodies to CCP may predict the eventual development into Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) when found in undifferentiated arthritis and is a marker of erosive disease in RA. The sensitivity of anti-CCP has been shown to be comparable to RF (50-75%) with a higher specificity (90-95%).
