About Complement c1q
What is complement C1q?
Complement C1q is a subunit of the first complement protein C1. The complement system is a group of proteins present in the blood and body fluids which are part of the innate immune system. The complement system helps the body to fight infections by promoting inflammation, facilitating removal of pathogens, such as bacteria and clearance of cell debris. Deficiencies in C1 are associated with autoimmune conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) polymyositis, glomerulonephritis, and Henoch-Schönlein purpura, as well as recurrent skin infections.
Why take the test?
This test measures the levels of C1q in the blood and might be used to help investigate autoimmune conditions and recurrent infections.
