About the Test
Vectra measures rheumatoid arthritis inflammation

The Vectra test is an advanced blood test that objectively measures inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA inflammation can cause pain, irreversible joint damage and damage to organs, like the heart and put you at risk for cardiovascular disease.

By using Vectra over time, your scores reveal how well your current treatment plan is controlling inflammation.
