This test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of certain autoimmune thrombotic disorders, such as antiphospholipid syndrome (aPS). Antibodies to PS/PT correlate with the presence of lupus anticoagulants (LA) and this test may be useful in cases with difficult LA test interpretation. This assay may also assist in the determination of risk for thrombosis as well as obstetric complications in patients with antiphospholipid antibodies.
What is APS?
The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a unique form of acquired autoimmune thrombophilia characterized by recurrent arterial and/or venous thrombosis, pregnancy-related complications (including miscarriages, fetal deaths, premature births, and preeclampsia), and the persistent presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL).

IgG and/or IgM antibodies to phosphatidylserine (aPS) may be associated with a positive test for anti-cardiolipin autoantibodies (aCL) and risk for obstetric antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
Strong clinical correlation is recommended in the absence of lupus anticoagulant, IgG and/or IgM cardiolipin and/or beta2 glycoprotein antibodies.
Isolated presence of IgM or IgG antibodies to aPS may have questionable clinical significance for APS and/or SLE.
If results are positive, repeat testing with two or more specimens drawn at least 12 weeks apart to demonstrate persistence of antibodies.
