Complement: Total hemolytic complement (ch50) is the best functional assay of the complete complement sequence.Ch50 is often decreased in sle, glomerulonephritis and other immune complex diseases.A normal ch50 level indicates that all the components, c1 through c9, are present.However, individual complement factors may be depleted 50 to 80% without affecting ch50. Non-specific ; when elevated non-diagnositic.
