Record ID 32013000533
Authors' recomendations: Results from a systematic review of the HTA report and guidelines, existing systematic reviews, and systematic reviews of reports in the Korean population support the conclusion that the anti-CCP antibody test is both necessary and useful in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, which suggests that this test is expected to contribute to the early treatment of patients with this disease by enhancing specificity in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, especially when the disease is in its early stage.
