Comparison of different assays for the detection of anticyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Publication Date Aug 2, 2022


ObjectiveTo evaluate a novel fully automated immunoturbidimetric assay developed by Qiangsheng Biotechnology Company for the detection of anticyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies (anti-CCP) in serum of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and compare it to the conventional EUROIMMUN- anti-CCP ELISA. Two other commonly used automated assays, the Elecsys anti-CCP assay, an ECLIA that is run on the Modular Analystics E170 (Cobas Diagnostics, Germany), and an anti-CCP CLIA developed by YHLO that is run on the iFlash 3000 Chemiluminescence Immunoassay Analyzer, were included as reference standards.MethodsA total of 264 serum samples were collected from patients attending the First People’s Hospital of Wenling affiliated to Wenzhou Medical University between July 2020 and November 2020. These included 131 serum samples collected from patients with RA, 70 serum samples collected from patients with other autoimmune diseases, and 63 serum samples collected from healthy controls at a physical examination. The clinical performance and sensitivity and specificity of the four anti-CCP assays for the diagnosis of RA were compared using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis.ResultsThe Kappa statistic indicated almost perfect agreement between the EUROIMMUN-anti-CCP ELISA and the Elecsys anti-CCP ECLIA (Cobas) (0.863), the EUROIMMUN-anti-CCP ELISA and the anti-CCP CLIA (YHLO) (0.862), and the Elecsys anti-CCP ECLIA (Cobas) and the anti-CCP CLIA (YHLO) (0.816). On ROC curve analysis, AUC values were 0.955 for the EUROI...
