Special Issue Description

Complement is a complex protein network in plasma that is an essential component of the innate immune system. Complement activation causes immune cells to rapidly clear bacteria and direct bacterial killing via large pore-forming complexes. Understanding the molecular interactions between complement and bacteria is critical for developing future treatments for infectious and inflammatory diseases. Antibodies that support complement-dependent bacterial killing are of interest in the development of alternative therapies for antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. Several novel therapeutic complement inhibitors have also been developed to prevent unwanted complement activation in autoimmune inflammatory diseases. A better understanding of how such inhibitors may increase the risk of bacterial infections is required if such therapies are to be successful.
