Open Access Abstract Antibodies directed against citrullinated vimentin are members of the family of autoantibodies reactive with citrullinated proteins and are among the most specific serological markers for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis RA . This study was performed to test the diagnostic value of a newly developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay ELISA for the detection of antibodies against a genetically modified citrullinated vimentin anti-MCV in comparison with a second-generation anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides anti-CCP2 ELISA test system. Blinded sera from 631 patients 409 consecutive out-patients and 222 randomly selected stored sera with RA n 164 and non-RA osteoarthritis n 120 polymyalgia rheumatica giant cell arteritis n 80 spondyloarthritis n 36 and other inflammatory rheumatic or non-inflammatory disease n 67 .
