Rheumatoid factor RF

Rheumatoid factor RF is used as a diagnostic parameter in rheumatoid arthritis. It is an autoimmune antibody. Elevated values are found in 50-70% of its cases and it takes an interval of 6 months for the test to be counted as positive.

The examination for rheumatoid arthritis (Rheumatoid producing RF) is done with a quantitative method (we measure a number and compare it with normal values) so that the severity of the disease (rheumatoid arthritis) can be assessed, but also the relative changes that assess the progression - course disease.

A positive test for rheumatoid arthritis (Rheumatoid factor RF) can be measured in:

  1. healthy people (5-10% of the general population/25-30% of people over 70)
  2. 5% rheumatoid variants (arthritis associated with psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, etc.)
  3. 20-30% systemic lupus erythematosus scleroderma, mixed connective tissue disease, polymyositis
  4. Sjogren's syndrome
  5. Infections from viruses, microbes or parasites
  6. lung, liver, kidney diseases

Simple blood collection at any time of the day, without preparing food or avoiding medication

  1. without restrictions on food from the previous day
  2. without restrictions on possible medication intake
  3. the result is not affected of any existing transient illness - cold

The result is given on the same day.
