The overall objective of the BMBF-funded international collaborative project (university and industrial partners) is to enhance the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of tumor cell resistance to complement (e.g. by overexpression of membrane complement inhibitors). The project will focus on specific targeting potent siRNA to tumor cells in order to silence membrane complement regulators. This is expected to lead to sensitization of tumor cells to antibody-induced (e.g. Rituximab) complement attack and to opsonization that may also improve NK cell cytotoxicity.
