ACTIVATED PROTEIN C RESISTANCE TESTING ALGORITHM


Algorithm for the diagnosis of the Factor V Leiden mutation and APC Resistance

*The most commonly used screening assay is PTT-based.

Some alternative screening assays are relatively insensitive to lupus anticoagulants

As hirudin or argatroban anticoagulation prolongs the PTT, a DNA test would be recommended if these anticoagulants are present
