Table 2 Diagnostic accuracy of ten ACPAs (presented in alphabetical order), anti-CCP2 antibodies, anti-CarP antibodies and RF isotypes, analysed separately and in combination with the three RF isotypes, for RA development in pre-symptomatic individuals

From: Rheumatoid factor isotypes in relation to antibodies against citrullinated peptides and carbamylated proteins before the onset of rheumatoid arthritis
