Similarly, rheumatoid factor, anti-nuclear antibodies, anticardiolipin antibodies
, antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies, anti-DNA antibodies and anti-Brucella antibodies were not investigated in the absence of indicative clinical signs in our patient.
Involvement of beta 2-glycoprotein I and anticardiolipin antibodies
in oxidatively modified low-density lipoprotein uptake by macrophages.
International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) guidelines were followed to test Anticardiolipin antibodies
, beta-2 glycoprotein I antibodies and lupus anticoagulant.10
A thrombophilia screen, including anticardiolipin antibodies
, proteins S and C, activated protein C resistance, antithrombin III, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate, was normal.
The disease is defined by a combination of at least one clinical feature characterized by vascular thrombosis or pregnancy morbidity and elevated titers of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL), which include anti-Beta2 Glycoprotein-I antibodies, anticardiolipin antibodies
, and lupus anticoagulant (3).
Coagulation studies, factor V Leiden, and anticardiolipin antibodies
in 40 cases of cerebral venous thrombosis.
SAN DIEGO -- While use of the investigational agent blisibimod did not meet the primary endpoint in a phase 3 trial in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), it was associated with steroid sparing, decreased urine protein, a trend toward decreased anti-double-stranded DNA antibodies, and significant decreases in anticardiolipin antibodies
and immunoglobulin levels.
Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) is a multisystem autoimmune disorder characterized by vascular thromboses and/or pregnancy loss associated with persistently positive antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) indicated by lupus anticoagulant (LA) test, anticardiolipin antibodies
(aCL), and/or anti-beta2 glycoprotein-I antibody (aB2GPI) .

Undetectable anticardiolipin antibodies
, which are the most sensitive in diagnosing antiphospholipid syndrome , allow reasonably excluding this cause of adrenal failure.
The lupus anticoagulant assay was consistently negative, and anticardiolipin antibodies
were not detected throughout the clinical course.
