BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury is an unavoidable consequence of tissue transplantation or replantation that often leads to inflammation and cell death. Excessive complement activation following IR induces endothelial cell injury, altering vascular and endothelial barrier function causing tissue dysfunction. To mitigate the IR response, various(More)
Ischemia and reperfusion of organs is an unavoidable consequence of transplantation. Inflammatory events associated with reperfusion injury are in part attributed to excessive complement activation. Systemic administration of complement inhibitors reduces reperfusion injury but leaves patients vulnerable to infection. Here, we report a novel therapeutic(More)
