Arthritic disease activity: anti-MCV positive versus anti-MCV negative patients. Statistical comparisons were performed between anti-mutated citrullinated vimentin (anti-MCV)-positive and anti-MCV-negative patients at the indicated time points. Dotted lines represent anti-MCV-positive patients, and straight lines represents anti-MCV-negative patients. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.005. CRP, C-reactive protein; DAS28, Disease Activity Score based on 28 joints; ESR, erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
