Abstract
Introduction: Clinical interest in antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) is due to their relation with arterial and venous thrombosis in the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Patients and methods: We analyzed 488 APS patients: 346 patients with primary (PAPS) and 142 with secondary APS (sAPS/ SLE); 81.5% women and 18.5% men; average age 45.03?13.61. aPL analysis included detection of aCL (IgG/IgM), ?2GPI (IgG/ IgM), and LA. The objective was to observe the prevalence and localization of thrombosis, and correlate it to aPL type and level in patients diagnosed with PAPS or sAPS. Results: Thrombosis was diagnosed in 46.5% patients, with higher prevalence in PAPS compared to sAPS patients (51.2% and 38.3%, respectively, p=0.045). There was similar prevalence of arterial thrombosis in both groups (34.6% and 34%, respectively, p=0.932) although venous thrombosis was more frequent in PAPS (25.9% and 8.5%, respectively, p=0.001). Thrombosis was observed in 55.8% patients who had more than one type of antibodies (category I), in 41.9% patients with category IIa, in 46.3% patients with category IIb, and in 44.2% patients with category IIc (p=0.10). There was no statistically significant difference in the prevalence of arterial/venous thrombosis in patients with low/normal, intermediate, and high levels of aCL and anti-β2GPI (IgG, IgM). Older age in APS patients is a risk factor for thrombosis (median age 49.8 and 39.8, respectively, p=0.001). Conclusion: The prevalence of venous thrombosis was higher in the PAPS group. Antibody category and levels of various types of antibodies did not correlate with the prevalence of thrombosis in the Serbian National Cohort Study.
