Evaluation of lupus anticoagulants: antiphospholipid antibodies, endothelium associated immunoglobulin, endothelial prostacyclin secretion, and antigenic protein S levels.

Abstract

Plasma samples from nineteen patients with well characterized lupus anticoagulants (LA) were evaluated using a series of test systems. An ELISA was used to determine if the plasmas contained antiphospholipid antibodies (APA); fifteen of nineteen LA plasmas contained APA, with five exhibiting IgG only, two exhibiting IgM, and eight plasmas containing both… (More)
