If the antibody industry is to achieve its full potential in the next decade, the individual technical potentials must be exploited, the limitations must be addressed, and lessons learned must be applied both to current purification methods and to the new technologies that continue to emerge. This book presents an overview of the current advances applied in the manufacture of monoclonal antibody including:
-concepts in development of manufacturing strategies,
-importance of antibody fragments,
-application of chromatography method development,
-effect of expression on antibody properties,
-virus removal and safety,
Antibodies Volume 1: Production and Purification together with Volume 2: Novel Technologies and Therapeutic Use will be of great value to all of those who are actively working in the field of antibodies.
Volume 2: Novel Technologies and Therapeutic Use brings to the forefront current advances in novel technologies for the manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies and also their extensive clinical importance. Following on from Antibodies Volume 1: Production and Purification, this volume concentrates on:
-new technologies in the manufacture of monoclonal antibodies,
-the application of antibodies in cancer therapy and functional genomic therapy,
-the importance of antibodies and prospects of antibody engineering for the future.
