The Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)
is a disorder of coagulation defined by the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies
in patients with recurrent venous or arterial thrombosis, thrombocytopenia and pregnancy-related complications.
APS can occur in patients without evidence of any definable associated disease or in association with SLE
, another autoimmune disease. Traditionally, this has been referred to as Primary APS
or Secondary APS
Anti-phospholipid antibodies bind to anionic phospholipids, especially the Cardiolipin/Beta2-Glycoprotein complex
In this context, D-tek
has developped a new BlueDot APS that allows to screen serologically for the anti-Phospholipid Syndrome.
