Positive anti-phospholipid antibodies may be Conil's syndrome, prone to spontaneous abortion in the second trimester, secondary secondary to autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus.
Positive in antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, myocardial infarction, stroke (also known as stroke), systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, and tumors, infectious diseases (AIDS, leprosy, dysentery, etc.).Positive results may be diseases: scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, myocardial infarction, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome precautions

Requirements for examination: In conjunction with a doctor's examination, neuropathy in SLE patients may be related to the destruction of the blood-brain barrier caused by ACA inhibition of glial cells and the effect of ACA on nerve cells and nerve fibers.Inspection process
(1) Meet one clinical performance index plus one laboratory indicator.
(2) APL is positive twice, with an interval of >3 months.
(3) Follow-up for more than 5 years to exclude SLE or other autoimmune diseases.
Inspection method: Since the establishment of ACA method by Harris et al in 1983, research on this antibody has been widely recognized and rapidly developed worldwide.Not suitable for the crowd
Contrained people: Some drugs are taken orally: people such as chlorpromazine and phenothiazine.Adverse reactions and risks
