Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), also known as Hughes syndrome, was first described by Dr Graham Hughes in 1983. The features of the clinical picture may include migraine, memory loss, vein and artery thrombosis, multiple sclerosis and recurrent miscarriage. Because one of the main features includes thrombosis (blood clotting), the name 'sticky blood syndrome' has often been used as a shorthand to describe this condition. APS affects individuals from all ethnic backgrounds. Although individuals of all ages may be affected, most show features of APS before 45 years. The increased tendency to form blood clots in individuals with APS may have a devastating effect on any part of the body including the legs, arms, chest, head and a number of 'internal' organs such as the kidney and liver. Commonly, blood clots develop in the veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis) causing pain and swelling, usually starting in the calf. Clotting in the leg may happen once or several times. Clots may also occur in the lung (pulmonary embolus). Clotting in arteries can result in strokes or heart attacks.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome
Medical Author: William C. Shiel Jr., MD, FACP, FACR What is the antiphospholipid syndrome?
The antiphospholipid syndrome is a disorder of the immune system that is characterized by excessive clotting of blood and/or certain complications of pregnancy (premature miscarriages, unexplained fetal death, or premature birth) and antiphospholipid antibodies (cardiolipin or lupus anticoagulant antibodies). Patients with antiphospholipid syndrome have developed abnormal symptoms while having antiphospholipid antibodies detectable in the blood. Antiphospholipid syndrome is also called the phospholipid antibody syndrome. Antiphospholipid syndrome has been referred to as Hughes syndrome in honor of the doctor who first described it. It is important to note that antiphospholipid antibodies can also be found in the blood of individuals without any disease process. In fact, antiphospholipid antibodies have been reported in approximately 2 percent of the normal population. Harmless antiphospholipid antibodies can be detected in the blood for a brief period occasionally in association with a wide variety of conditions, including bacterial, viral (hepatitis, HIV), and parasite (malaria) infections. Certain drugs can cause antiphospholipid antibodies to be produced in the blood, including antibiotics, cocaine, hydralazine

Hughes Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
© MMII, Ken Lassesen, M.S. In 1999, I had sudden onset CFS while I was employed by Microsoft. Microsoft offers self-insured medical insurance that is extremely liberal for all practical purposes there was no deductible or restrictions on any tests that my MD wish to try – of course, living in the US meant a wealth of private facilities and laboratories. As a result of this blessing, not only did I go into full remission from CFS but my wife and two daughters had an accurate diagnosis of their odd symptoms and rational treatment started. Our class of CFS appears to be a variant of Hughes Syndrome (formerly called Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS)). The first paper on this variant was published in 1999 by David Berg and others [i] . Add to this blessing, our existing family practice MD believed that CFS was very real and that she had no treatment for it – but she was willing to listen, learn and cooperate if I could present hard, peer-review research. I was her first CFS patient that she had seen 2 weeks before onset and 2 weeks after onset – very dramatically illustrating the changes. I was also her first patient to become symptom free.

Up Aldosterone Hughes Syndrome Testing Pathogens Other Tests The following tests are used to exclude Hughes Syndrome (and variants) as being the cause of CFS. All tests must be negative (there are many variants of Hughes Syndrome).
Immune System Activation of Coagulation Panel
For detection of "sticky blood" there are several tests. The usual US-CFS test is the ISAC Panel from Hemex laboratories (
Anticardiolipin Antibodies
This is a cheap test, but it requires two positive tests 6 months apart for a positive result. . It is suggested as a possible pre-ISAC panel test to justify the ISAC expense. (Note: a negative results does not imply a negative ISAC panel)
Lupus Anticoagulant
The name does not imply Lupus rather an antibody that is also seen with Lupus. Moderate number of positive results.
Wasserman Reaction
This is a very old syphilis test, a positive test does not imply syphilis, rather one form of Hughes Syndrome. Least amount of positive results.

Graham Robert Vivian Hughes English rheumatologist. Associated eponyms: Hughes' syndrome A common autoimmune prothrombotic disease characterised by an increased tendency to form thromboses. Biography: Graham R.V. Hughes, MD FRCP, is presently Head of the Lupus Unit and consultant rheumatologist, The Rayne Institute, St. Thomas' Hospital, London, UK. Graham Robert Vivian Hughes qualified at the London Hospital in 1964 and subsequently worked for some years in London. From1969 he spent two years in New York at the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and at the Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, where he was part of the team which introduced anti-DNA assays for the diagnosis and management of systemic lupus erythomatosus. Hughes returned to London in 1970 and in 1971 succeeded Professor Eric George Lapthorne Bywaters (1910-2003) as Head of Rheumatology at the Hammersmith Hospital and became Reader in Medicin. That year he set up Britain's first dedicated lupus clinic, at The Hammersmith Hospital. In 1985 Hughes moved to St Thomas' Hospital where, in the Rayne Institute, he set up the Lupus Arthritis Research Unit. The following year The Lupus pregnancy clinic was established in collaboration with colleagues in obstetrics – the first such clinic in the world.

A Patient's Guide
As with any delicate machine, the human body can be profoundly affected by its supply of vital running materials. Thus, the tendency for the blood to clot excessively has the potential to cut off the oxygen supply to any organ of the body. In 1983, Dr Graham Hughes and his team in London described a syndrome and subsequently developed simple blood tests to diagnose the condition. This syndrome is characterised by thrombosis (both in limbs and internal organs), headaches, memory loss, strokes and, in pregnant women, placental clotting and recurrent miscarriage. The syndrome, now known worldwide as Hughes Syndrome, or the anti-phospholipid syndrome, is common - being responsible for example, for up to 1 in 5 cases of young stroke. More important, it is treatable. This book provides the first in-depth description of the syndrome for patients.
