C3a, C4a and C5a, known as anaphylatoxins, can release vasoactive amines and lysosomal enzymes, enhance vascular permeability, and cause smooth muscle to contract (Guo and Ward 2005).
La activacion del complemento por las diferentes vias lleva a la formacion de las anafilotoxinas C3a, C4a y C5a que incrementan la permeabilidad vascular e inducen en los mastocitos y los basofilos la liberacion de histamina, TNF-[alfa], PAF (factor activador de plaquetas, por la sigla en ingles de platelet-activating factor), prostaglandinas y leucotrienos (29).
It was shown in a previous study (22) that simultaneously reducing circulating endotoxin, IL6 and C5a levels by selective immunoadsorption reverses monocyte deactivation and improves organ function in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock.
Anaphylatoxins, mainly C5a, signal via the MEK kinase cascade, and both engage in cross-talk via NF kappa B.
