Activation of the alternative pathway of complement by Malassezia ovalis (Pityrosporum ovale).

Abstract

Activation of C3 and factor B in normal human serum by P. ovale was demonstrated using a standard unidirectional immunoelectrophoresis technique. Activation of complement by the alternative (properdin) pathway is a possible mechanism by which P. ovale may mediate an inflammatory response.
