Antiphospholipid antibodies disappearance in primary antiphospholipid syndrome

Research has been published looking at the controversy over negative antiphospholipid antibody results in people who have been diagnosed with primary APS at an earlier stage.

The authors of this paper looked at patients who had clearly been positive for the blood tests and had a diagnosis of APS, but whose subsequent tests had been negative.

The study suggest that, in primary APS, persistent negative antiphospholipid antibody profile is not an indication to interrupt oral anticoagulant therapy.
