Anti Phospholipid Syndrome (also known as Antiphospholipid Syndrome or Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, APS, APLS or even Catastrophic APS and now Systemic Antiphopspholilid Antibody Syndrome - So many names for just one disease)
This site is intended as a research resource for medical professionals, patients and families who wish to learn more about a little known lethal, yet treatable, blood disorder that
Early signs of this disease
are often diagnosed as many different disorders before being correctly diagnosed. This inability to correctly diagnose is not due to any form of medical inefficiency, but is due to the disease only being recognised in
the last 9 years, and it's ability to mimic the symptoms of a number of well known and documented diseases.
Even though I have a clinical diagnosis of Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS), wear an SOS Talisman bracelet and carry a medical fact card on me, in an emergency the Accident and Emergency doctors still insist on treating the possibly catastrophic events as a Migraine.
I hope this site will help to raise the awareness of many doctors
and health care professionals, and give help and the comfort of understanding the problems to patients and their families.
Research into Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS) is still being completed at a number of hospitals and research centres worldwide. The information within this site has been collected from their sites and from weekly updates from Medscape.com
I would be interested to hear from patients and doctors who have experience of AntiPhospholipid Syndrome (APS) and its associated disorders.
If these pages have been of interest or help please e-mail me at Eddie@apls.tk
with your comments and reasons for visiting the site, as this will help in assessing the need for updates.
Allergy sufferers probably agree that few things are as diverse and confusing as allergies. They can lead to itchy skin, clogged or runny nasal passages,uncontrollable sneezing fits and severe allergic reactions can cause death. It’s really important for those with seasonal or year-round allergies to understand how their environment, both indoors and out, may play a role in causing or aggravating their symptoms (including those horrible skin reactions!), because in addition to working with their doctor, understanding this relationship may help them find some relief. Here are a few links that I have been sent that will be of use:
With many clinical trials struggling to find appropriate candidates, we hope that our new tool will help to streamline the process of completing clinical trials, which in turn will speed-up the introduction of new drugs to the general public.
https://policylab.us/clinical-trials/lupus/ This page will be an ongoing resource for website visitors as it will update automatically whenever a new clinical trial is available. It also features international based clinical trials for individuals who do not reside within the United States.
After seeing the message above about wishing to hear from people with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or APLS), I receive many mails, but some are really disturbing, and are enough to make me want to publish some of them. Please follow this link to a pagewhich will horrify all those without Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APSor APLS), but will be all too common for those with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APSor APLS)who have visited Emergency Rooms around the world.

If in America the following link could be a real boon. Expertise.com has some really helful information.
Recently I received the following e-mail, which has renewed my passion for getting good information out to those who need it:
name is Cassie and I am a volunteer at the Different with Dignity Community
Center. We've been reviewing some sites on the internet for a project about
where to find helpful educational resources and/or business ideas for people
with disabilities. We came across your page http://bulfin.net/apls.tk/ and found
a lot of extremely useful information on there for us and wanted to thank
As a thank you, a couple of the
kids in the group wanted to send you back another page they found that included
some resources for people with disabilities getting into business that they
thought you might want to add to your site because it could help you and your
other visitors as well -
They've actually been using some resources on there
along with your website to complete their project. Would you be able to consider
adding a link to the page they found on your site for them? I would love to
surprise them by showing them it on the site before they finish their project.
They would be so excited! That generally calls for a cake day around here!
I think it is cakes all round then as I have now included the link. Well done guys you have put together some really useful information on your page.
If you have found this site helpful and are a return visitor, you will notice that there are a number of new additions in the menu of diseases. These have been added as a direct result of the Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS) Survey, where it was noticed that many of these diseases are shared by patients with APLS. I will continue to add new pages as I research them, and any
help with links or information would be greatly appreciated.
