Serum anticardiolipin antibodies in recurrent abortion.
Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;10(4):406-7.
The present study was carried out to detect the serum anticardiolipin antibodies (ACA) in recurrent abortion. Fifty women with history of recurrent abortions (Group A) were selected with twenty normal women of childbearing age as controls (Group B). Routine haematological investigations like haemoglobin, TLC & Platelets were done by haematology autoanalyzer. PT, APTT and serum anti-cardiolipin antibodies (IgG & IgM) were done by commercially available kits. Serum anticardiolipin antibodies were raised in patients with recurrent abortion when comparing with controls. PT was prolonged in one patient and APTT was prolonged in four cases.
