APA IgG Antibody to Phospholipids Test/ Phospholipid Syndrome Profile in Ahmedabad
APA Test measures the amount of apa antibodies in the blood.
To help investigate the presence of blood clots or an unexpectedly prolonged PTT (partial thromboplastin time), especially if you have had recurrent miscarriages; as part of an evaluation for antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
This test is recommended when a person shows symptoms of a blood clot (thrombotic episode), such as pain and swelling in the extremities, breathlessness, and headaches. It also may be ordered when a woman has had recurrent miscarriages and/or as a follow-up to a prolonged PTT test.
Antiphospholipid antibodies are a group of immune proteins (antibodies) that the body mistakenly produces against itself in an autoimmune response to phospholipids. Tests can detect these autoantibodies that bind to phospholipids and in a way, that's not well understood, increase the danger of excessive blood clotting.

A negative result means only that the particular antibody tested wasn't present at the time of the test.
Low to moderate levels of 1 or more antibodies may occur temporarily due to an infection or drug or may appear as a person age. These levels are often not considered significant but must be examined in conjunction with an individual's symptoms and other clinical information.
In some cases, a person may have one or more immunoglobulin classes of a specific antibody present or absent. For instance, the person may have significant quantities of IgG and IgM cardiolipin antibodies or may only be positive for the less frequently tested IgA cardiolipin antibody.
Moderate to high levels of 1 or more antiphospholipid antibodies, which persist when tested again 12 weeks later, indicate the likely continued presence of that specific antibody.
