Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is an autoimmune disorder where abnormal antibodies in the blood can cause recurrent pregnancy losses (repeated miscarriages) or blood clots in the leg veins (deep venous thrombosis or dvt) or lungs (pulmonary embolism or pe).
We look for these antibodies in women with two or more miscarriages. It is treated with low dose Aspirin plus Heparin or Lovenox (enoxaparin) shots.

In brief: APLS
Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is an autoimmune disease that can cause the blood to clot more easily.
This can put an individual at increased risk of some health problems like blood clots or pregnancy problems like miscarriage or stillbirth or pre-eclampsia. It can be treated with medications which help prevent blood clots, like Coumadin (warfarin) or Heparin or lovenox.
