Antibodies to prothrombin and factor V correlate-with PTFE graft thrombosis
In this study, 88 hemodialysis patients (44 AV fistulas [AVF], 28 PTFE grafts [PTFE], 16 cuffed catheters [CC]) were studied for the presence of antibodies to human and bovine prothrombin (FII), bovine factor V (bFV), and human β2-glycoprotein I (β2GPI). Antibody levels were measured by ELISA. The results were correlated with the patients' access history.
