Sammanfattning : The complement system plays an essential role in the humoral immune response. Activated complement has diverse functions, including the initiation of inflammation, recruitment of leukocytes, clearance of immune complexes, neutralization of pathogens, regulation of antibody responses and disruption of cell membranes.

Sammanfattning : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Complement is part of the innate immune system and functions primarily as a first line of defense against invading microorganisms. It is a complex cascade, which can be activated via three pathways: the classical, alternative and mannan-binding lectin pathway. LÄS MER
4. Analysis of Complement Deficiency States. With Focus on Molecular Characterization of C4 and Properdin Deficiency
Sammanfattning : Complement deficiency is associated with an increased risk for invasive infection and immune complex disease. Screening for identification of complement-deficient patients is essential and a new ELISA-based procedure for detection of complement deficiency is described. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Complement activation occurs during inflammatory joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is thought to contribute to the chronic inflammation observed within the joints. Previous studies have shown that certain cartilage components of the small leucine-rich repeat protein (SLRP)-family regulate complement activity, thereby possibly contributing to disease progression.
