Such patients have multiple serological abnormalities like anticardiolipin antibodies
, cryoglobulins, and hypocomplementemia.
The three pregnancies with fetal loss included two women who tested positive for anticardiolipin antibodies
Immunoglobulin G anticardiolipin antibodies
and progression to Q fever endocarditis.
They are often concurrent with anticardiolipin antibodies
and both cause antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
High prevalence of anticardiolipin antibodies
in patients with asymptomatic hepatitis C virus infection associated acute ischemic stroke.
The most clinically important APLs are the lupus anticoagulant, the anticardiolipin antibodies
, and anti-[beta]2 GPI.
Lupus anticoagulant is the most important predictor of risk and high titer anticardiolipin antibodies
alone don't provide substantial risk," said Dr.
At that time the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis, biochemical analysis, vasculitis markers, serum levels of anticardiolipin antibodies
, anti-Ro, anti-LA, anti-JO-1, anti SM, anti scl-70, and rheumatoid factor were within normal limits but erythrocyte sedimentation rate was 76 mm/h.
19) Anticardiolipin antibodies
show clinically significant association only at moderate to high titers, and the IgG isotype appears to carry more clinical significance than the IgM isotype for both aCL and antiB2GPI antibodies.
1-3) Non-treponemal tests (RPR) detect anticardiolipin antibodies
and are not specific for syphilis.
were more commonly seen in class IV lupus nephritis.
The potential mechanisms proposed are the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies, such as anticardiolipin antibodies
and lupus anticoagulants, and also increased levels of von Willebrand factor, fibrinogen and D-dimers as well as deficiencies of protein C, protein S, antithrombin III, heparin cofactor II and increased platelet activation.
