Moreover, in view of the high specificity of these antibodies, the test is particularly useful in differential diagnosis between RA and other arthritides that are clinically similar to RA and may be positive for rheumatoid factor (RF), such as hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated cryoglobulinemia (6, 7), undifferentiated polyarthritis (8), or Sjbgren syndrome (9, 10).
