Usage: Cardiolipin antibodies are useful in identifying patients with an increased risk of thrombosis, recurrent spontaneous abortions and phospholipid antibody syndrome. Cardiolipin antibody may be elevated in patients with SLE and related autoimmune disorders. Anti Beta 2 Glycoprotein 1 (Beta 2GP1) antibodies are independent risk factor for thrombosis in autoimmune diseases and complications of pregnancy. Presence of these antibodies can also be helpful in the diagnosis of Antiphospholipid syndrome.
