116th International Congress Fundraiser*16th International Congress Fundraiser*The 16th International Congress on Antiphospholipid Antibody Congress will be held in the UK in September 2019. Please consider a donation of $10 or more to send representation from the US to this important doctor/patient conference, which is only held every 3 years. It is vital to share information with APS specialists and other patients worldwide if we are to further knowledge and research that could benefit all patients with Antiphospholipid Syndrome. It is up to everyone to do our part to aid earlier identification of APS, make further advances in treatment options, and ultimately find a cure! The APS Foundation of America, Inc. is the only United States nonprofit health agency dedicated specifically to bringing national awareness to Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), the major cause of multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, and young strokes and heart attacks. We are a volunteer-run, community-based, non-profit organization. Women are more likely than men to be affected by APS. Some estimates say that 75% to 90% of those affected are women. For example, it has been estimated by some doctors that one third of all of young strokes (defined as under the age of 50) are due to APS. In obstetrics it is estimated by some doctors that up to 25% of all women with 2 or more spontaneous miscarriages have APS. Some doctors believe that 1 in 5 of all Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and even worse, amputations are due to APS. And it is believed that 40-50% of patients with Lupus also have APS. Still, with these statistics, APS rarely is discussed as a women’s health issue and is misdiagnosed often. Therefore the total number of people affected and true statistics are unknown really. Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. There are two known forms of APS. APS may occur in people with systemic lupus erythematosus, other autoimmune disease, or in otherwise healthy individuals. Sadly, when most people hear about APS and it being referred to as autoimmune disease, they incorrectly confuse the terms autoimmune with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS); or they think this is a form of cancer. This lack of knowledge, awareness and joint effort results in needless suffering for persons with Antiphospholipid Syndrome due to misdiagnosis and / or delayed diagnosis, which usually results in damage to vital organs. The APS Foundation of America, Inc’s vision is to bring national attention to APS as a common factor in multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, young strokes and heart attacks is vital in order to bring a joint effort to research, funding, early detection, and eventually, prevention and cure for APS.

For example, it has been estimated by some doctors that one third of all of young strokes (defined as under the age of 50) are due to APS. In obstetrics it is estimated by some doctors that up to 25% of all women with 2 or more spontaneous miscarriages have APS. Some doctors believe that 1 in 5 of all Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and even worse, amputations are due to APS. And it is believed that 40-50% of patients with Lupus also have APS. Still, with these statistics, APS rarely is discussed as a women’s health issue and is misdiagnosed often. Therefore the total number of people affected and true statistics are unknown really. Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. There are two known forms of APS. APS may occur in people with systemic lupus erythematosus, other autoimmune disease, or in otherwise healthy individuals. Sadly, when most people hear about APS and it being referred to as autoimmune disease, they incorrectly confuse the terms autoimmune with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS); or they think this is a form of cancer. This lack of knowledge, awareness and joint effort results in needless suffering for persons with Antiphospholipid Syndrome due to misdiagnosis and / or delayed diagnosis, which usually results in damage to vital organs. The APS Foundation of America, Inc’s vision is to bring national attention to APS as a common factor in multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, young strokes and heart attacks is vital in order to bring a joint effort to research, funding, early detection, and eventually, prevention and cure for APS.

It is vital to share information with APS specialists and other patients worldwide if we are to further knowledge and research that could benefit all patients with Antiphospholipid Syndrome. It is up to everyone to do our part to aid earlier identification of APS, make further advances in treatment options, and ultimately find a cure! The APS Foundation of America, Inc. is the only United States nonprofit health agency dedicated specifically to bringing national awareness to Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), the major cause of multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, and young strokes and heart attacks. We are a volunteer-run, community-based, non-profit organization. Women are more likely than men to be affected by APS. Some estimates say that 75% to 90% of those affected are women. For example, it has been estimated by some doctors that one third of all of young strokes (defined as under the age of 50) are due to APS. In obstetrics it is estimated by some doctors that up to 25% of all women with 2 or more spontaneous miscarriages have APS. Some doctors believe that 1 in 5 of all Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and even worse, amputations are due to APS. And it is believed that 40-50% of patients with Lupus also have APS. Still, with these statistics, APS rarely is discussed as a women’s health issue and is misdiagnosed often. Therefore the total number of people affected and true statistics are unknown really. Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. There are two known forms of APS. APS may occur in people with systemic lupus erythematosus, other autoimmune disease, or in otherwise healthy individuals. Sadly, when most people hear about APS and it being referred to as autoimmune disease, they incorrectly confuse the terms autoimmune with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS); or they think this is a form of cancer. This lack of knowledge, awareness and joint effort results in needless suffering for persons with Antiphospholipid Syndrome due to misdiagnosis and / or delayed diagnosis, which usually results in damage to vital organs. The APS Foundation of America, Inc’s vision is to bring national attention to APS as a common factor in multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, young strokes and heart attacks is vital in order to bring a joint effort to research, funding, early detection, and eventually, prevention and cure for APS.
