Objective. To investigate the incidence of various antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLs), measured by commercial-based laboratory, with recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) patients and the impact of the species, isotype, titer, and number of positive aPLs on reproductive outcome in Japanese. Method. In this retrospective cohort study, 263 patients with RSA without possible causes were investigated. Of 131 patients with one or more positive aPL, 82 pregnant women under anticoagulant therapy were evaluated. Results. The incidence of various aPLs was almost consistent with previous report. Overall, successful pregnancy rate with anticoagulant therapy was 91.4% regardless of aPL profiles. There was no significant difference in the pregnancy maintenance rate between IgG and IgM groups or single positive and multiple positive groups, but there was a tendency for the rate with aspirin to be lower than with aspirin plus heparin in IgG group. Conclusion. aPL profile did not affect the pregnancy maintenance rate when anticoagulant therapy was actively introduced, however in IgG group, we recommend combination therapy with aspirin and heparin.
