Beta 2 Glycoprotein 1 Antibody
- Apolipoprotein H
B2GP1 is a protein necessary for normal blood clotting. When the body produces antibodies to B2G1, these antibodies can be measured and are very specific to an increased development of blood clots known as Hughes Syndrome. Hughes Syndrome (which was called Antiphospholipid Syndrome in the past) occurs mainly in people with autoimmune diseases such as SLE (systemic lupus erythmatosis), but can occur without any other diseases being present.
