The functions of the complement system include : immunological lysis of cells, destruction of bacteria, initiation of various stages of the inflammatory reaction, including increase in vascular permeability, production of chemotactic substances, enhancement of phagocytosis, promotion of blood coagulation, neutralization of viruses, and activation of bacterial lipopolysaccharides . The mechanism of the sequential activation and inactivation of the complement system resembles, in its complexity, that of clot formation.
In the case of circulating haematological cells, however, some cell-sessile antibodies can also be demonstrated. e. the formation of specific rosettes around more than 6 of 1,000 lymphocytes [20, 102]. Significance of this technique in autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is a matter of debate [111 ], and care should be taken to avoid mistake for non-specific rosettes around sheep RBC apparently indicating human T lymphocytes. Some authors distinguish (i) complete antibodies (IgM cold agglutinins) easily demonstrated in saline, and (ii) incomplete (IgG) antibodies which are only demonstrable in a colloidal medium(= albumin or serum).
