antibody testing laboratory
I’m looking for a US facility that will test for IgM antibodies to the phosphatidylserine-prothrombin complex (IgM aPS/PT.) Clinicians from Japan report this antibody correlates with cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa.
While it’s still off-label, testing for the IgG antibody to the same phosphatidylserine-prothrombin complex (IgM aPS/PT) is sometimes done when profiling antiphospholipid syndrome patients.
If you’ve been tested for antibodies to the phosphatidylserine-prothrombin complex, might you share the name of your testing lab?
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases Support Group.
@2catmom, While we wait for others who may be able to share names of their specific testing labs in the U.S., I found a few that may be what you are looking for:
— Mayo Clinic Laboratories – https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/test-catalog/Overview/64704
— Labcorp – https://www.labcorp.com/tests/504439/antiphosphatidylserine-prothrombin-complex-igg
The support on Mayo Clinic Connect is wonderful!
Thanks @johnbishop for the Mayo Clinic and LabQuest links. From the CPT codes on those sites, I followed up on @kstar077 Quest suggestion and found Quest’s version https://testdirectory.questdiagnostics.com/test/test-detail/11447/phosphatidylserineprothrombin-pspt-antibodies-igg-igm?cc=MASTER
P.S. for those interested in the arguments for testing, here are some urls
