About Beta 2 glycoprotein 1 antibodies igg igm

What are beta-2 glycoprotein-1 antibodies?

Antibodies are proteins typically produced by the immune system to target and protect against harmful entities. In rare cases the immune system can malfunction, producing antibodies which target and attack the body’s own cells. Disorders caused by this process are called autoimmune diseases. The presence of autoantibody beta-2 glycoprotein-1 antibodies is associated with inappropriate blood clotting. The presence of beta-2 glycoprotein-1 antibodies is associated with autoimmune conditions antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Why take the test?

This test screens for the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies. Along with other blood clotting tests, it is used to diagnose blood clotting issues associated with autoimmune diseases such as APS or SLE.
