Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder that causes abnormal blood clots to form. Autoimmune disorders occur when your body’s immune system makes antibodies that attack and damage your own tissues or cells. Normally, antibodies protect your body from viruses or bacteria, but in APS, antibodies attack the body’s healthy cells. High levels of APS antibodies raise the risk of blood clots.
