EIAgen anti-Cardiolipin IgM

brief description

Anti cardiolipin and anti-phosphatidyl serine antibodies along with others, such as the Lupus Anticoagulant (LAC), belong to the family of anti-phospholipid antibodies. Anti-cardiolipin antibodies are circulating serum antibodies often associated with recurrent arterial and venous thromboembolism, recurrent foetal loss and thrombocytopenia. These symptoms are often present in cases of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and in many other conditions, both of an autoimmune and of a non-autoimmune nature. Some studies show that over 50% of SLE patients have one or more classes of anti-cardiolipin antibodies. The presence of this antibody serves as a marker for the risk of a thromboembolitic event.

intended use

The EIAgen Anti-cardiolipin IgM is a enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method for the quantitative determination of specific IgG autoantibodies to cardiolipin in human serum.
