Phospholipid Antibodies, IgM, Serum



Expression of IgM antibodies indicates recent exposure to phospholipids and are frequently found in sera of patients with SLE and related diseases, which is typical for a secondary anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS). There is a correlation between these autoantibodies and an enhanced incidence of thrombosis, thrombocytopenia and habitual abortions as a consequence of placental infarction. Most patients with “anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome” have moderate or high levels of cardiolipin antibodies. See Also Cardiolipin Antibodies, Serum
