Effect of C3b inactivator on monocyte-bound C3-coated human erythrocytes.

As a model of IgM-induced hemolytic anemia in man, human erythrocytes were sensitized with IgM antibody and coated with complement components, including C3 and C4, using human serum as a source of complement. These coated red cells were then interacted with monolayers of human mononuclear phagocytic cells (monocytes). Complement-coated red cells so bound… CONTINUE READING
