Summaries for Complement Component 8 Deficiency

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Complement component 8 deficiency is a disorder that causes the immune system to malfunction, resulting in a form of immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiencies are conditions in which the immune system is not able to protect the body effectively from foreign invaders such as bacteria. People with complement component 8 deficiency have a significantly increased risk of recurrent bacterial infections, particularly by a bacterium called Neisseria meningitidis. Infection by this bacterium causes inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis). Although meningitis can be life-threatening, individuals with complement component 8 deficiency are less likely to die from the infection than people in the general population who contract it.

MalaCards based summary : Complement Component 8 Deficiency, also known as c8 deficiency, is related to complement component 8 deficiency, type ii and complement component 8 deficiency, type i. An important gene associated with Complement Component 8 Deficiency is C8A (Complement C8 Alpha Chain), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Creation of C4 and C2 activators and Complement and coagulation cascades. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord and brain.
