C8 COMPLEMENT

Patients with deficiencies of late complement proteins (C5-C9) are unable to form membrane attack complex and may have increased susceptibility to Neisserial infections. Most patients with C8 deficiency usually have invasive Neisserial infections. This assay is useful in the diagnosis of C8 deficiency and for investigating a patient with an absent Total complement (CH50) level.
