The rationale for the assay is that a contact activator is used to provide a surface for high-molecular-weight kininogen, prekallikrein, and FXII, thereby stimulating the production of FXIIa.
Research has shown that elevated level of aCL contributes to increased thrombotic risk by mechanisms such as platelet damage, interference with antithrombin III activity, and inhibition of prekallikrein or protein C activation by thrombomodulin.
During pre-incubation time, contact factors (XII and XI) are activated in the presence of high molecular weight kininogen and prekallikrein.
