The Environment and Antiphospholipid Syndrome


The Environment and Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Y Levy et al. Lupus. .


The etiology of autoimmune diseases is multifactorial. The degree to which genetic and environmental factors influence susceptibility to autoimmune diseases is poorly defined. It is believed that versatile clinical presentations of autoimmune diseases stem from various combinations of the genetic and environmental factors. One of the newly diagnosed autoimmune diseases is the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). APS is characterized by vascular thrombosis, and/or pregnancy morbidity associated with anticardiolipin (aCL), anti-beta2-glycoprotein-I (anti-beta2GPI) and lupus anticoagulant (LAC).
