    I am currently a dental student. A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with Lupus Anti-Coagulant. I was wondering if any of you guys had any info on the disease, or places where I could go and research it more so I have a more thorough background on the disease. Thanks in advance.

    try uptodate. most libraries have it. It is the best part of med school. You know the Lupus Anti-Coagulant is a misnomer right? In vivo it's actually a pro-coagulant ab.

    SDN is not a board on which to obtain medical advice.

    Agree, but the TOS is silent on legal advice and very explicit on the medical advice restrictions. I think it's assumed that no one is going to seek legal advice on a health oriented board.
