If I suspect RA I order both RF and CCP together. I find that most referrals/consults where RA is being considered come with only a RF ordered. Perhaps seeing this info outside of Rheum specific journals will encourage more widespread use of the CCP. However, I must reinforce that neither is a screening test and should be ordered in the appropriate clinical setting. Thanks for highlighting the info.
