Inhibition of Complement

It is known that patients with genetic deficiencies in the complement system, especially C2 and C4, have a high incidence of lupus and other autoimmune diseases, presumably because this leads to defects in the clearance of immune complexes (Dubois and Wallace 1987). Hydralazine and several other drugs interact with C4 and inhibit binding of C4 to C2, and it was proposed that this could represent the mechanism of drug-induced lupus (Sim and Law 1985). The hydroxylamine of procainamide also binds to C4 (Sim et al. 1988), but the concentration of this metabolite in vivo is unlikely to be sufficient to have much of an effect.
