Immune Response, Infection and Inflammation
The primary utility of the CH50 in the practice of an allergist-immunologist is to screen for complement- deficiency associated immunodeficiency (primarily classic or terminal complement component deficiencies). Absent or significantly reduced individual complement components may result in infections, Neisserial meningitis, or sepsis.
A reduced CH50 in this situation warrants quantification and functional assays of individual complement components.
Reduction of the CH50 occurs when individual complement component(s) are deficient or consumed.
