Is there a blood test to show RA disease activity?
Try Vectra DA!
There is a multi-biomarker blood test called Vectra DA which is used to quantify the level of disease activity in RA patients. It is only used if you have a firm diagnosis of RA. To learn more about it, go to http://www.vectra-da.com. It is made by Crescendo Biosciences. If your rheumatologist would like to learn about it, please direct him to http://www.crescendobio.com. Hope this helps!
Thanks: I really like my rheumatologist, and think he is very capable. However, he is not very forthcoming with information unless I ask specific questions. I’m assuming there is a blood test that shows how active the disease is. Since I still have not entered any period of remission at this point, I’d like to know what the name of the blood test is so I can gauge my levels. The only result I’m aware of is my original RA factor when the first blood tests were done and that was 208.
