Occurrence of selected antiphospholipid antibodies in offspring born from mothers with autoimmunity
Mockova A et al. – Preliminary results of the study showed the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) in 42.1% neonates of aPL positive mothers with autoimmune disease, six month later aPL were present in only 37.5 % of these children. Observed occurrence of aPL positivity at 6 months of age in originally negative offspring could be attributed to vaccination or food exposure. Psychomotor development of children has proceeded without major deviations. The follow–up study continues and will evaluate both groups of children at two years of age.
