Heme Curation v0.0.1-dev

Mechanistic knowledge surrounding heme



This scenario may resemble that of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria patients, who can be treated with complement C5- blocking antibody eculizumab [80]; in this example, extravascular hemolysis has been shown to occur in a small number of these patients despite treatment. It has been suggested that this is due to erythrophagocytosis of red blood cells deficient in the C3d-opsonized complement regulators – CD55 and CD59 [81,82].
