Introduction: Recent data strongly has suggest that phospholipids binding proteins are the physiologically relevant targets of antiphospholipid antibodies(aPL), the most common and best characterized proteins involved are Beta2Glycoproteine I(B2GPI).
Methods: We studied sixty patients with SLE and sixty two blood bank donors.
We tested Anticardiolipin antibodies (aCL)(IgG and IgM isotypes)and anti-B2 GPI by enzyme linked immuno-assay (ELISA), LA activity (LAC) using both diluted thromboplastine time and Staclot LA.
Results: Prevalence of aPL (40%)was increased in patients with SLE in comparaison to blood donors (p<0.001).
A combination of a positive aCL and anti-B2GPI ELISA better correlates with the clinical manifestations observed in APS (p<0.01).
In the univariate analysis,we confirmed LA and aCL to be related to vascular thrombosis (p<0.001).Anti-B2GPI both IgG and IgM correlated with venous thrombosis.
Multivariate logistic regression analysis of risk factors for vascular thrombosis, confirmed that the combination positive LAC,positive aPA IgG and anti-B2GPI-IgG was significant risk factor for vascular thrombosis (OR 6.39,95% confidence intervals 1-39)
Conclusions: The results showed that the triple positivite LA/anti-béta 2GPI-IgG/aPA-IgG correlates better with the risk for thrombosis than the positive LAC alone.
