About Cartilage antibodies

What are cartilage antibodies?

Antibodies are proteins typically produced by the immune system to target and protect against harmful entities. In some cases, the immune system can malfunction, producing antibodies which target and attack the body’s own cells. Disorders caused by this process are called autoimmune diseases. Cartilage antibodies are antibodies which target and attack cartilage, causing inflammation of the joints and rheumatoid arthritis.

Cartilage antibodies are associated with rheumatoid arthritis. 

Why take the test?

This test checks for the presence of cartilage binding antibodies in the blood. It is used in conjunction with other tests to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis.
