Özet

Objectives: In this study we tested the diagnostic values of rheumatoid factor (RF), anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) and two different commercial anti-mutated citrullinated vimentin (anti-MCV) kits in the differential diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) considering that there might also be substantial differences between the performances of the commercial kits.
