Circulating Immune Complexes (CIC)
Circulating immune complexes (CICs) are detectable in a variety of systemic disorders such as rheumatological, autoimmune, allergic diseases; viral, bacterial infections and malignancies. Although detection of CICs is neither essential nor specific for any disease, anti-C1q assay is likely to provide information regarding disease activity in lupus nephritis.
