15163 - ISTH "Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome"

Join Maria Laura Bertolaccini and Bas de Laat for this webinar to learn about the diagnosis and management of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. The diagnosis of the antiphospholipid syndrome is made on the basis of occurrence of thrombosis and the detection of antiphospholipid antibodies. As thrombosis has a high prevalence in the human population, the detection of antiphospholipid antibodies has to be accurate and precise. During this webinar, de Laat will discuss the detection of antiphospholipid antibodies in detail highlighting problems that one might face. Bertolaccini will discuss the treatment options after diagnosis.
