Classical Complement Pathway

The Classical Complement Pathway is activated by antigen-antibody complexes. Activation of this pathway leads to the generation of the membrane attack complex, which kills pathogenic cells. Discover the latest research on the Classical Complement Pathway here.

Complement Pathway: Mannose-Binding Lectin

The Mannose-Binding Lectin Complement Pathway is activated when mannose-binding lectin binds to mannose found on the surface of pathogens. Subsequent complement activation is similar to the classical complement pathway, but without the need for antigen-antibody complexes. Discover the latest research here.

Inflammation Mediators

Inflammation Mediators include cytokines, prostaglandins and other molecules that ochestrate the inflammatory process in response to injury, allergy or pathogens. Discover the latest research on Inflammation Mediators here.
