Hughes Syndrome Screen

About this test

The medical name for Hughes Syndrome is the antiphospholipid syndrome, although it is also described as 'sticky blood'.

Hughes Syndrome is an autoimmune disease which affects the blood and its ability to clot. This means clotting in the veins, arteries or even internal organs, leading to potentially life threatening results including heart attacks and strokes.

Although it tends to affect the 20-50 year old age group, Hughes Syndrome can attack anybody, with women being lightly more at risk than men. It's estimated that 1 in every 100 people are affected by Hughes Syndrome.
