The Lupus Anticoagulant Test is considered to be more specific in nature, but less sensitive than the anticardiolipin antibodies when predicting the thrombosis. The positive result of the lupus anticoagulant test is seen to be in around 20% of the patients with the anticardiolipin antibodies, and then seen in about 80% of patients with the positive lupus anticoagulant test.

The Antiphospholipid syndrome would occur with the immune system being mistaken and when it produces the antibodies making blood which would likely clot. The Antibodies also protect your body against the invaders, such as the viruses along with bacteria. The Antiphospholipid syndrome would be caused by the underlying conditions, such as the autoimmune disorder.

The Specific blood tests this promotes the diagnosis of APS that can only be made after the 2 abnormal blood test results, and a 12-week gap between the two tests. This is because harmless antiphospholipid antibodies can sometimes develop in the body for short periods of time.

The Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is known to be caused by the body's immune system which is seen to be producing the abnormal antibodies that are called antiphospholipid antibodies. This also increases risk of the subsequent blood clots that are developing in blood vessels, which would further lead to the serious health problems, such as the DVT (deep vein thrombosis)

If the blood tests show that one has an abnormal antiphospholipid antibodies, but in case don't have the history of the blood clots, with the low-dose aspirin tablets that could be usually recommended. However, if you can't take the aspirin, you might be prescribed with the alternative antiplatelet tablet, which is called clopidogrel.

In some of the patients, the antibodies are seen as transient and it leads to disappearance within 2 or 3 months.
