In addition, organisms bound by complement can be internalized by phagocytic cells, with resultant clearance of the organism. Internalization through complement receptors on antigenpresenting cells can also result in the processing of antigen for presentation to T lymphocytes. The details of complement activation have been reviewed elsewhere (88). It is important to note that antibodies that bind and activate complement may also directly inhibit pathogens in the absence of complement. Complement activation may also have an indirect effect on pathogens by recruiting and activating leukocytes to sites of infection (89, 90).
