immune adherence

immune adherence
the adherence of antigen-antibody complexes or cells coated with antibody or complement to cells bearing complement receptors or Fc receptors. The agglutination reaction between antigen-antibody complexes or antibody coated cells and indicator cells, usually human erythrocytes, bearing complement receptors is used as a detector system in complement fixation tests (immune adherence hemagglutination assay).
