This test measures 3 key biomarkers related to rheumatoid arthritis

imaware™ is the only at-home rheumatoid arthritis screening test capable of detecting the cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (CCP-IgG). CCP-IgG is a unique biomarker that can provide awareness of RA before symptoms appear¹. We also screen for two Rheumatoid Factor (RF) biomarkers in the single test to provide a more comprehensive result.

Common rheumatoid arthritis symptoms to watch for

Rheumatoid arthritis can develop for months without displaying any symptoms, and immediate family members are 5x more likely to be affected. You should also consider getting tested if you experience any of the following symptoms²,⁵:

Leg pain

Joint pain

Fatigue

*If you are experiencing heart attack symptoms, please see a doctor immediately.

3.6 Million

Over 1.1% of Americans are currently affected by celiac disease¹

80%

Of those who are affected are currently undiagnosed¹⁻²

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious autoimmune condition that causes your own autoimmune system to mistakenly attack itself. Rheumatoid arthritis starts to develop months¹ before symptoms show — causing joint pain, arthritis and often permanent joint damage. Over 2 Million Americans are estimated to have RA, and about 1.3 Million Americans were diagnosed with RA as of 2014⁵,⁶.

Who is the most at risk?

First-degree family members are 5 times more likely to have rheumatoid arthritis as well — and your general likelihood of developing this condition grows as you get older. Cases are also more commonly found in women, and other risk factors such as obesity and smoking have also been linked to rheumatoid arthritis³.

What’s the benefit of early testing?

Rheumatoid arthritis starts to develop months before symptoms show, so early testing can significantly reduce time to diagnosis. Early treatment is critical to slowing the progression of RA, preventing long-term joint damage, and protecting your overall health. If left untreated, over 20% of patients become severely debilitated within the first 3 years following initial diagnosis.
