Complement Group

The Complement group, headed by Prof. Seppo Meri, has for long had an interest in sorting out how and why the complement system contributes to disease pathogenesis, how the system is controlled and how pathogenic microbes, parasites and tumor cells escape complement attack. Abnormalities in complement regulation lead directly to a variety of immunological diseases and are involved also in cardiovascular, immunological and rheumatic diseases.
