Methodology

Photo-Optical Clot Detection

Limitations

Expected impact by therapeutic levels (potential interference depends upon drug concentration): Warfarin: no effect (panel includes mixing studies which correct for Warfarin-induced factor deficiencies); Heparin (UFH or LMWH): possible to misclassify as LA; Dabigatran or Argatroban (Thrombin Inhibitors): panel includes Thrombin Time (TT) which detects thrombin inhibitors, unable to detect if TT significantly abnormal; Rivaroxaban or Apixaban (Factor Xa Inhibitors): possible to misclassify as LA.

Reference Range(s)

Lupus Anticoagulant Not detected
PTT-LA Screen  ≤40 sec 
DRVVT Screen ≤45 sec 

Clinical Significance

Lupus anticoagulants (LA) are members of a family of antibodies with phospholipid specificity. LA may be defined as an immunoglobulin, IgG or IgM or a mixture of both, that interferes with one or more of the in vitro phospholipid (PL) dependent tests of coagulation. These antibodies are not associated with a hemorrhagic diathesis, but rather have been linked to thrombotic events. In addition to thrombosis other clinical complications have been associated with the presence of LA. These include strokes, nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis, livedo reticularis and a variety of obstetrical complications such as intrauterine fetal death, recurrent spontaneous abortion, fetal growth retardation, early onset preeclampsia and chorea gravidarum.
