IHC of C4d on a FFPE Spleen Tissue
IF of C4d on a Frozen Spleen Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.
This antibody is intended for use in Immunohistochemical (IHC) and Immunofluorescence (IF) applications on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues (FFPE), frozen tissue sections and cell preparations. Interpretation of results should be performed by a qualified medical professional.
|Summary and Explanation||Complement component 4, or C4, plays a central role in the complement system. C4d is the final proteolytic remnant of deposited C4b on endothelium and remains covalently attached to endothelium for little more than a week. It is easily detectable by Immunohistochemistry.
Anti-C4d combined with anti-C3d can be utilized as a tool for diagnosis of AR (Acute Rejection) and warrant prompt and aggressive anti-rejection treatment. C4d can be detected in peritubular capillaries in both chronic renal allograft rejection as well as hyperacute rejection, acute vascular rejection, acute cellular rejection, and borderline rejection. It has been shown to be a significant predictor of transplant kidney graft survival and is an aid in treating acute rejection.
