CH50 Blood Test - More Information

The CH50 test, also known as a total complement test, measures the CH50 blood level.

The CH50, or total complement activity, test measures the effectiveness of part of the immune system known as the complement system. The complement system helps other parts of the immune system attack invaders and clear out damaged cells. The complement system is made of proteins made in the liver.

The CH50 test may be low in the setting of a genetic mutation, liver or kidney issues, arthritis and hemolytic anemia (red blood cell destruction). High CH50 levels may be seen in certain types of cancers and general inflammatory conditions.
