Decreased complement activity after bilateral renal ischemia in rats

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The bilateral occlusion of the renal arteries for 2 h resulted in a marked decrease of serum complement activity after recirculation. The release of a proteinic factor with anticomplementary activity detectable in vitro in normal kidney supernate is considered a probable cause of the phenomenon. This factor is capable to activate the alternative complement pathway in human serum.
