The clinical features typical of APS are not commonly observed with aPLassociated infections (Asherson and Cervera, 2003), with aCL of the IgM isotype found more frequently than the IgG isotype (Bertolaccini and Khamashta, 2006). The aPL found in infections Epidemiology of the Antiphospholipid Syndrome can be distinguished from those found in APS by determining LA activity and anti-b2GPI, as these antibodies are related to the thrombotic features of APS but are not present in most cases of infection (b2GPI-independent or non-thrombogenic aPL) (Amin, 2008).
