Özet

Objective: Although there is an opinion that anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (anti-CCP) is a reliable diagnostic and prognostic indicator in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), its association with disease activity and severity is uncertain. This study has been planned to determine the relationship between anti-CCP antibody levels and the disease activity in patients with RA.
