Haemostatic and complement changes in a family with 'allergic' disorders

Clinical Allergy
I NeumanD Creter

Abstract

A family with allergic manifestations, haemostatic disturbances, total absence of haemolytic activity of the complement system and low IgG levels is described. It is suggested that this functional abnormality of the complement system and the decreased level of immunoglobulin G may be due to immune complex reactions.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
