  • 1-150 Cardiolipin reactivity presented as mean OD units at 405 nm.

  • 1-151 Serum samples were diluted (in phosphate buffered saline (PBS)) at 1:100 and the cryoprecipitates were diluted (in PBS) at 1:10. Background values representing non-specific binding to non-antigen wells were subtracted in all assays. Standard deviation between triplicates did not exceed 10% in all assays.
