The project is titled, “Graft-targeted anti-complement therapy to reduce cardiac graft injury and allograft vasculopathy.” The goals of this project are to investigate how the complement system is involved in these acute injuries and how these injuries modulate allograft vasculopathy. A further goal is to characterize a therapeutic strategy based on graft-targeted complement inhibition that will reduce the need for immunosuppression.
