OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence and specificity of anticyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies (anti-CCP) and rheumatoid factor (RF) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and to evaluate the effect of immune reconstitution on these markers. METHODS Patients with advanced HIV infection without arthritis were enrolled. CD4+ T lymphocyte counts (CD4), anti-CCP, and RF were determined before initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART) and repeated after 6… CONTINUE READING
