C De SimoneC U Casciani


Assessment of Clq, Cls, C4, C3, C3a, C5, C9, C3PA, C1INH fractions and CH50 activity of serum complement was performed in 24 patients with renal failure undergoing periodic haemodialysis. Alternate pathway activation was found together with high levels of non involved fractions. Mechanisms and biological implications are discussed.
