Anti Phospholipid Ab IgM

Antiphospholipid Antibodies are produced by the abnormality in the Immune System where antibodies are triggered against self-antigens thus affects the healthy cells and causes autoimmune diseases against phospholipids. This test measures the anti-phospholipid antibodies IgM to examine the excessive time taken for the blood clotting (PPT- Partial thromboplastin time).

Why Antiphospholipid Antibody:IgM test?


Antiphospholipid Antibody-IgM helps diagnose the reasons for recurrent miscarriage, asses and/or monitors prolonged PTT (Partial thromboplastin time), and/or assesses the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or also called Hughe’s syndrome. This test helps to determine inappropriate blood clot formation - Thromboses (causes increased risk of blood clots) such as either excess clotting or unexplained thrombotic episodes etc, which may result in patient’s miscarriages during pregnancy. Symptoms of antiphospholipid syndrome are balance and mobility problems, diplopia (double vision), speech and memory problems, pins and needles sensations in legs and hands, fatigue (extreme tiredness), and repeated headaches or migraines. The prolonged untreated complication may lead to low platelet count (thrombocytopenia), intravascular coagulation, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, etc. Anti-phospholipid antibody screening by ELISA confirms the antibodies against cardiolipin, phosphatidyl serine, phosphatidyl inositol, phosphatidic acid, and co-factor beta-2– glycoprotein –1and lupus anticoagulant in human serum or plasma.
