Immunoregulation And Immunointervention in Transplantation and Autoimmunity
As a clinician, my first goal is to treat patients. However, I have an important clinical research by including patients in national and international therapeutic trials, trying, to improve their health care.
My scientific field of interest is the autoimmune systemic diseases, particularly Systemic Lupus and ANCA Vasculitis.In Lupus, we conducted 2 original proof-of-concept trials, testing new drugs as Arsenic Trioxide or new strategy, testing adoptive transfer of autologous EBV-CTL, with interesting preliminary data
In translational research, we collaborate in studies on vasculitis, analyzing the role of non-conventional T lymphocytes or DC subpopulations
