The one point that Dr. H. mentions about anti-CCP and rheumatoid arthritis that I would add is that there has been one bug that has been pinpointed as causing citrullination (hence, the anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide). This bug is p. gingivalis it's also not necessarily the only bug that may cause citrullination) and so anyone with RA who may also have MSIDs does not mean that "they just have RA," but that are also immune-compromised and that this particular bug may also be a part of this syndrome.

Anti-CCP has also been found to be positive in some chronically ill Lyme patients and other rheumatic and infectious disease processes:

"The specificity of the anti-CCP tests is therefore not exclusive to RA since anti-CCP could be detected during Lyme's disease, hepatitis C infection, psoriatic arthritis, multiple sclerosis and primary Sjogren's syndrome. [1]"
