Is there a lab in Europe that tests for complement system activation?

Complement system abnormalities*.

Maybe its possible to send the tests to the US from Europe? Or maybe it will take too long, that I havent found out yet. The best would most likely be to find something in Europe.

This is a CFS Case w/ sustained Complement activation Complete remission after complement activation fragments reached normal levels.

Im very interested to test for this. Maybe I can get my Dr to test for it if Im lucky. Would having complement activation qualify for eculizumab/IVIG? It actually looks like it where I live, maybe this could be a way to get IVIG.

How did they lower the patients compliment levels? I didn’t see any treatment. Did they just come down to normal on their own? Spontaneous remission?
