  • The Taipan snake venom time using dilute phospholipid as a screening test with a platelet neutralization procedure as a confirmatory test has been shown to be a sensitive and specific approach to detection of lupus anticoagulants. Taipan venom is largely insensitive to the effects of ongoing warfarin anticoagulation and this can be useful in detection of lupus anticoagulants in patients receiving this treatment. This study compared the use of the platelet neutralization procedure with the… CONTINUE READING
