Antiphospholipid syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disease related to the presence in the body of so-called antiphospholipid antibodies. These antibodies affect the function of phospholipids and create an alteration in coagulation.

Consequently, APS is characterized by the occurrence of arterial, venous or small vessel thrombosis. In pregnant women, APS leads to recurrent miscarriages, fetal loss and premature delivery.
