Special Issue "Monoclonal Antibodies"
A special issue of Antibodies (ISSN 2073-4468).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2017)
Monoclonal antibodies are established in clinical practice for the treatment of cancer, and autoimmune and infectious diseases. The first generation of antibodies has been dominated by classical IgG antibodies, however, in the last decade, the field has advanced, and, nowadays, a large proportion of antibodies in development have been engineered. This Special Issue on "Monoclonal Antibodies" will cover original manuscripts and reviews in the field of the development of classical monoclonal antibodies that address novel biology, as well as progress in the engineering of novel antibody formats, including antibody drug conjugates, bispecific antibodies, and antibody-like scaffolds.
