Answer

The laboratory evaluation for factor-related hypercoagulability conditions includes measurement and evaluation of the following:

  • Complete blood cell counts, prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, and serum chemistry values

  • Protein C and APC resistance (factor V Leiden testing if abnormal)

  • Protein S level

  • Antithrombin level

  • Antiphospholipid antibodies panel (lupus anticoagulant, anticardiolipin, anti-beta2-glycoprotein I)

  • Homocysteine level
