Grant Activity:
GNT1162522 | Paradoxical antibody: the role of antibody in exacerbating Pseudomonas lung infection
Purpose:
Antibody is a vital defence mechanism of the host immune system and protects against infection. Recently however, we identified a specific type of antibody that actually protects bacteria from immune killing. Presence of this ‘inhibitory antibody’ correlated with worse disease and two patients have been successfully treated by removal of antibody. Here we explore the mechanism behind the inhibition to guide new therapies to target removal or inactivation of this inhibitory antibody.
