Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 6)


Circulating immune complexes play a pathogenic role in several diseases by virtue of their immunological and biological properties. On the one hand, they promote an inflammatory reaction by complement activation (1), an action which largely explains their capacity to damage various tissues such as renal glomeruli, blood vessels and joints.
