The relation between pregnancy outcome and single- or double-positivity of anticardiolipin (aCL) and β2 glycoprotein I (aβ2GPI) in antiphospholipid syndrome has yet to be clearly documented. In this article, a total of 191 lupus anticoagulant negative pregnant patients with primary antiphospholipid syndrome were retrospectively divided into three groups: aCL(+)/aβ2GPI(-); aCL(+)/aβ2GPI(+); aCL(-)/aβ2GPI(+). All patients had received medical therapy consisting of prednisone (10-15 mg/d), low-dose aspirin (50 mg/d), and low molecular weight heparin (40 mg/d). The miscarriage rate in the double-positive group was significantly higher than that in the aCL(+)/aβ2GPI(-) group (46.2% vs. 22.1%, p<0.05); the miscarriage rate in the aCL(-)/ aβ2GPI(+) group (36.4%) was not significantly different than the rates of the other two groups (p>0.05). Thus, double-positivity may be a risk factor for pregnancy loss and aβ2GPI antibody may be a better prognostic marker than aCL antibody for pregnancy outcome. © 2012 The Authors Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica © 2012 Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
