Antibody fragments are under development as a next generation antibody therapeutic that takes advantage of their smaller sizes in comparison to a full antibody. They have unique structural characteristics, and hence challenges, which may differ from those of full antibodies in regard to production, purification/refolding, and formulation. The current Special Issue welcomes contributions from experts in the field that address and review the current state-of-the art technology and developments in the field of antibody fragments.
