LP37859-3   Cyclic citrullinated peptide Ab
Anti-citrullinated protein/peptide antibodies (ACPAs) are autoantibodies (antibodies directed against one or more of the individual's own proteins) frequently detected in rheumatoid arthritis patients. During inflammation, citrulline is incorporated enzymatically into proteins[1], what is called citrullination. Recently, these ACPAs have turned up as powerful biomarkers, which are accepted as a major diagnostic tool in diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis (RA) already in a very early stage of disease.
