Approximately 30 monoclonal antibodies are currently licensed for use to treat human diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergy and transplant rejection. However, just one monoclonal antibody (palivizumab) is licensed that targets an infectious disease pathogen (respiratory syncytial virus, RSV). Nevertheless, several antibodies (approximately 10 of 200) are undergoing preclinical development, or are in clinical trials, for viral infectious diseases. 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 therapies against infectious diseases.
