Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test
The anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS) is a disorder of recurrent vascular thrombosis associated with persistently positive anticardiolipin (aCL) or lupus anticoagulant tests. In patients with APS, anticardiolipin antibodies bind a variety of charged phospholipids, including phosphatidylethanolamine, as well as they do cardiolipin. Lupus patients also have high titers of autoantibodies to various phospholipids, including phosphatidylethanolamine.
Presentations of the syndrome include thrombosis of deep veins of the legs, as well as renal, hepatic, inferior vena cava or sagittal veins. Occlusion of the arterial circulation may be manifested as a stroke, ishemic retinopathy, myocardial or bowel infarction, or peripheral gangrene. Thrombosis can occur in veins or arteries of any size. Recurrent pregnancy loss also appears to be the result of thrombosis within the placental vasculature.
Anti-phosphatidyl antibody tests are supplemental tests and should not be used alone for diagnostic purposes. Diagnosis of anti-phospholipid syndrome must be made in conjunction with other clinical indications.
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Reference Range applies to Anti-Phosphatidylethanolamine IgA, IgG, & IgM

Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.
The performance characteristics of the listed assays were validated by BioAgilytix Diagnostics. The US FDA has not approved or cleared these tests. The results of these assays can be used for clinical diagnosis without FDA approval. BioAgilytix Diagnostics is a CLIA certified, CAP accredited laboratory for performing high complexity assays.
CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.
CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
Provides guidance in determining the Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) values for the order and results codes of this test. LOINC values are provided by the performing laboratory.
