Lupus Anticoagulants LAC Profile Test


LAC test measures antibodies that interfere with the normal blood clotting process and increase your risk of blood clots in your veins and arteries. Antibodies are produced by your immune system when you take certain medications, get an infection, or have an autoimmune disease like lupus. Some infections, like syphilis or hepatitis C, can make you more likely to get these antibodies.

The LAC profile is a lab test that detects the presence of abnormal antibodies in your blood. These antibodies can interfere with your blood clotting process, increasing your risk of thrombosis or long-term bleeding. A positive LAC profile means you have an autoantibody that can cause your blood to clot. This type of autoantibody is known as a lupus anticagulant and can be associated with conditions like Anti Phospholipid syndrome(APS).

This LAC profile plays an important role in diagnosing and treating these autoimmune conditions, as well as providing guidance for treatment and prevention to minimize thrombocompromise or excessive bleeding.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Lupus Anticoagulants (LAC) Profile measures the presence of lupus anticoagulant antibodies, which can interfere with normal blood clotting mechanisms, leading to an increased risk of thrombosis. This test helps diagnose antiphospholipid syndrome and assess thrombotic risk.

The Lupus Anticoagulants (LAC) Profile is conducted to diagnose antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), an autoimmune disorder characterized by abnormal blood clotting. It helps assess the risk of thrombosis and guides treatment decisions to prevent complications such as deep vein thrombosis or stroke.

The Lupus Anticoagulants (LAC) Profile is recommended for individuals suspected of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) due to symptoms like unexplained blood clots, recurrent miscarriages, or thrombocytopenia. It's also indicated for those with autoimmune disorders, especially systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), as they have a higher risk of developing APS.

Abnormal results from the Lupus Anticoagulants (LAC) Profile indicate the presence of lupus anticoagulant antibodies, suggesting an increased risk of thrombosis and potentially indicating antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Further evaluation and management, including anticoagulant therapy, are typically recommended to prevent thrombotic complications.

During the Lupus Anticoagulants (LAC) Profile, a blood sample is collected from a vein, typically in the arm. The sample undergoes laboratory analysis to detect the presence of lupus anticoagulant antibodies and assess blood clotting function.
