The Complement C1 Esterase Inhibitor Functional Blood Test, also known simply as the C1 Inhibitor Blood Test, is commonly ordered to diagnose hereditary angioedema (HAE), a condition in which severe and recurrent episodes of swelling affect the face, airway, intestinal tract and/or limbs. C1 esterase inhibitor controls C1, the first component of the complement system, a part of the body’s innate immune system. The C1 Inhibitor Blood Test is an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) that evaluates the function of C1 esterase inhibitor. Test results are reported as a percentage of mean normal activity:

  • Abnormal: <41%

  • Equivocal: 41% to 67%

  • Normal: >67%

The C1 Inhibitor Blood Test is also known as C1 Esterase Inhibitor, C1 Inactivator, Esterase Inhibitor, and Hereditary Angioedema Test.
