What Is Beta 2 Glycoprotein 1-IgM Test?

Beta-2 Glycoprotein antibody is considered as one of the fundamental autoantibodies known as antiphospholipid antibodies. This antibody mistakenly targets the body’s own phospholipids (lipid-proteins) which is found in the cell membranes as well as platelets. This test is most of the times ordered with those for any other antiphospholipid antibodies, cardiolipin antibody as well as lupus anticoagulant. Antiphospholipid antibodies interfere along with the blood clotting process in the body in a way which is not fully understood. Their presence raises a person’s risk of growing inappropriate thrombi (blood clots) in both arteries as well as veins. Antiphospholipid antibodies are most often seen in individuals with the autoimmune disorder known as antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), which is related with blood clots (thrombotic episodes), a low platelet amount known as thrombocytopenia, or with pregnancy complications like pre-eclampsia as well as recurrent miscarriages, mainly in the second and third trimesters.
