Answer

On the basis of these complement-related genetic discoveries, various trials have been performed for complement-modulating agents, [30]  such as C3 inhibitor intravitreal compstatin/POT-4, anti-C5 antibody, C5 inhibitor ARC1905, antibody against complement factor D, antibody against BF, recombinant CFH, and a soluble form of complement receptor 1.
