Immunology of pyelonephritis in the primate model. VI. Effect of complement depletion.

Abstract

The inflammatory response has been shown to be responsible for the renal damage from bacterial infection. Phagocytic events are responsible for damage to the host as well as the pathogen. In this study we evaluated the effect of complement depletion, in an attempt to decrease chemotaxis and opsonization and thus decrease phagocytosis. Acute renal damage was decreased from both a decrease in inflammatory cells and phagocytic events in the areas of bacterial inoculation.
