Neutrophils enact lysis of antibody opsonized target tumor cells by utilizing the CD11b – CD18 interaction to form a cytotoxic synapse which leads to trogocytosis. This process can be effectively blocked by blockade with either anti-CD11b or anti-CD18 mAbs, but is enhanced when SIRPa – CD47 blockade is employed.
