NET-ting the autoreactive B cell memory by therapeutically targeting the humoral autoimmunity in patients with SLE

Objectives of the Project

Patients with SLE typically have circulating autoantibodies against DNA as a result of a humoral (auto-)immune response.

The research project intends to  comprehensively study the pathophysiology of the humoral autoimmune response in SLE patients

It is however noteworthy that patient representatives are involved in the separate clinical trials at each collaborating centre which investigate therapeutic strategies that specifically target humoral autoimmunity.
