ABSTRACT
In patients with non-autoimmune liver disease, anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) production is considered to be an epiphenomenon of liver damage not associated with thrombotic complications. There are sparse reports of increased non-specific prevalence of aCL in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). Researchers in this study aimed to evaluate the presence of aCL and anti-β 2 glycoprotein antibodies in a cohort of patients with PBC. Immunoglobulin G aCL are frequently detected in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis. Their presence is not related to disease stage, sex, or simultaneous occurrence of antinuclear antibodies or anti-smooth muscle antibodies.
