 Hotgen Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (Anti-CCP) Test Cassette


Hotgen Anti-CCP  is an accurate, rapid, semi-quantitative immunochromatografic test for the determination of Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide antibody in human serum and plasma as an aiding tool for diagnosing and controlling the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.


Anti-CCP: An early, specific marker for rheumatoid arthritis (RA)


Anti-CCP antibodies are highly sensitive and specific for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Studies show Anti-CCP test demonstrates an outstanding sensitivity of over 80% and a specificity of over 96%. The presence of anti-CCP antibodies can also be used to predict which patients will get more severe rheumatoid arthritis. The anti-CCP test enables clinicians to effectively distinguish RA patients from other RA-resembling diseases, even in cases where the rheumatoid factor (RF) is not discriminative. Anti-CCP antibodies can be detected very early in the course of RA.

The presence of anti-CCP is associated with significantly higher levels of erosions compared to rheumatoid factor and other parameters. Anti-CCP is an independent predictor of radiological damage and progression.

In 2009, Anti-CCP antibodies were recommended as diagnostic biomarker for early detection of rheumatoid arthritis in an ACR(American College of Rheumatology) meeting..

 Benefits of Anti-CCP test in summary:

Use as an early and specific biomarker for rheumatoid arthritis

Demonstrate greater specificity than RF while maintaining or increasing sensitivity

Differentiate erosive from less or non-erosive RA

Help physicians decide when aggressive therapy with biologicals is needed

Monitor the treatment efficacy of drugs for RA
