Antiphospholipid syndrome is a rate systemic autoimmune disease characterized by widespread arterial and venousthrombosis, recurrent abortion and thrombocytopenia. Laboratory tests reveal antibodies against phospholipids.These antibodies are detected by functional tests for the lupus anticoagulant, the anticardiolipin ELISA, theanti-b2-glycoprotein 1 ELISA and ELISA tests for antibodies against other cofactors and phospholipids. Pathogeneticmechanisms of thrombosis are poorly understood. Diagnostic assays for detection of antiphospholipid have not beenyet adequately standardized.
