CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Accession:CMO:0002111 term browser browse the term
Definition:A calculated measurement of the amount in a specified sample of serum of rheumatoid factor that is expressed as an immunoglobulin M (IgM) molecule in which the level of antibody is normalized to an arbitrary reference value or reference standard. Rheumatoid factor (RF) is an autoantibody against the Fc portion of IgG found in rheumatoid arthritis and some other autoimmune diseases. RF and IgG join to form immune complexes that contribute to the disease process.
Synonyms:related_synonym: serum IgM-RF level normalized to a reference value;   serum IgM-rheumatoid factor level normalized to a reference value
