Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome treatment

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome treatment

What is the treatment for antiphospholipid antibody syndrome? 

Few controlled trials have been conducted, and there is no consensus about the optimal treatment for patients with antiphospholipid antibodies.

Most authorities favor use of the antithrombotic agent warfarin, but plasmapheresis combined with immunosuppression and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) increasingly is used in severe cases.

Enoxaparin, rather than warfarin, and IVIG are the treatments of choice for pregnant women.
