Lupus Anticoagulant Testing Market Overview, Segmentation, Top Key Companies, Value Chain, Market Size and Trends

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. –   Lupus anticoagulants (LA) are antibodies directed against phospholipid-binding proteins that prolong phospholipid-dependent coagulation assays. Lupus anticoagulant testing is a special blood test to find out if certain antibodies or proteins that cause blood-clotting disorders are present. Persistent lupus anticoagulant testing positivity is a risk factor for the occurrence and recurrence of venous/arterial thromboembolism and/or pregnancy morbidity and qualifies the patient for lupus anticoagulant testing.

The antibodies to be tested are present in about 2-4% of the general population and may develop in people with no known risk factors. Initial lupus anticoagulant testing typically involves one or more tests that depend on phospholipid-containing reagents, usually partial thromboplastin time (PTT), the LA-sensitive PTT (known as PTT-LA) or dilute Russell viper venom test (DRVVT). The undiagnosed patients are at a constant risk of developing antiphospholipid syndrome, a disease that provokes blood clots in arteries and veins.

Lupus Anticoagulant Testing: Market Drivers and Restrains

Recurrent thrombosis in patients with blood disorders is expected to rise the demand for lupus anticoagulant testing. According to NIH, it is estimated that 20 percent of individuals younger than age 50 who have a stroke have antiphospholipid syndrome which would rise the size of lupus anticoagulant testing market with rising awareness. Blood disorders like anemia and bleeding disorders such as hemophilia, blood clots, and blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma are on rise. Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a bleeding disorder in which blood doesn’t clot properly. Between 2012 and 2016, more than 14,600 men, women, and children were seen at hemophilia treatment centers for treatment of VWD in the U.S which is expected to increase the demand for lupus anticoagulant testing. The number of traumatic injuries and wounds are on a rise which could be a reason for rising number of lupus anticoagulant testing done annually to confirm blood disorders.

Lupus Anticoagulant Testing Market: Overview

The lupus anticoagulant testing market is structured differently depending on the regions. North America and Europe has a number of diagnostic laboratories to avail for lupus anticoagulant testing. On the other hand, the existence of the condition is not known. The dependence on hospitals for primary blood related disorders in remote rural areas in Asia-Pacific and African countries is not observed in the developed lupus anticoagulant testing markets. Blood clots observed in patients with blood related cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma are expected to fuel the demand for lupus anticoagulant testing.
