Phosphatidylserine antibodies

Indication

If suspicion of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) remains despite negative results regarding the classical antiphospholipid associated antibodies (lupus anticoagulant (LA), IgG- and/or IgM-antibodies against beta2-Glycoprotein-1 and cardiolipin), IgA-antibodies against cardiolipin/ beta2-Glycoprotein-1 support the APS-diagnosis in isolated cases. In addition, antibodies against phosphatidylserine can be of value.

Method

ELISA
Can be tested as IgGAM or as individual IgG/IgA/IgM.

Answer

The result is given as negative or positive with a value (U/ml)

Interpretation

Autoantibodies against phosphatidylserine are associated with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) which is characterized by arterial and venous thromboses and by recurrent miscarriages.
