In recent years, bacterial and plant toxins have been leveraged for the elimination of unwanted cells by linkage to specific antibody carriers to form immunotoxins. These potent and specific cytotoxic agents provide a promising approach to human therapy. In this special issue, we will discuss their basic biology, some of the limitations of their use as therapeutic agents, and special considerations regarding their delivery.
