Role of complement in tumour formation : Friend or foe?
Turner, Rhodri Thomas Owain;
The aims of this thesis were to investigate and build on recent reports implicating the complement (C) system in tumour growth and progression. The respective contributions of specific C components and regulators to this effect were assessed by the use of two tumour ind... View more
