  • Complement Pathways in Disease

    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group and the New York Academy of Sciences

    The complement system is the first line of defense against infection, and is thus a critical step in maintaining biological health in response to invading pathogens. However, uncontrolled activation of complement – occurring commonly as a sequela to a number of diseases including kidney transplant, immune-complex mediated glomerulonephritis (lupus nephritis, membranous nephropathy), myasthenia gravis, neuromyelitis optica, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and autoimmune uveitis – can lead to host cell injury and ultimately end organ damage, creating a significant medical burden in a large population of already compromised individuals.

    Although the therapeutic role for complement blockade is not clear, it is an active area of research. This symposium will focus on novel insights into the complement pathway in a number of clinical disorders and offer potential therapeutic implications
