Abstract [en]

Antibodies directed against citrullinated proteins (anti-CP) constitute a newly defined group of autoantibodies with very high diagnostic specificity for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The most recently developed assays have a sensitivity comparable to that of traditional tests for Rheumatoid Factor (RF). Due to its considerably higher specificity, the authors recommend that anti-CP antibody analysis should replace the RF test in primary healthcare when investigating cases of clinically suspect RA.

Abstract [sv]

Antikroppar mot citrullinerade proteiner (anti-CP) ären nyligen beskriven grupp autoantikroppar medmycket hög diagnostisk specificitet för reumatoid ar-trit (RA).De senast utvecklade anti-CP-testen har en diagnos-tisk sensitivitet för RA som gör dem jämförbara medtraditionella test för reumatoid faktor.Introduktionen av anti-CP är ett viktigt tillskott till reu-matologisk laboratoriediagnostik tack vare testensbetydligt högre specificitet och prediktiva värde.Vid utredning av misstänkt RA inom primärvårdenrekommenderar vi att analys av anti-CP ersätter reu-matoid faktor som förstahandstest.
