Hello...
it is ACL IgM... that is cardiolipin antibodies are frequently used to help determine the cause of-
An unexplained blood clot, Recurrent miscarriages etc..
There are three classes of cardiolipin antibodies that may be present in the blood-  IgG, IgM and/or IgA. The two most commonly tested are IgG and IgM.. A negative result means only that cardiolipin antibodies are not present in blood stream at the time of test..
