Subject(s): Biology, Medicine
Attendee Requirements: None
About: In this session we will cover the vaccination of mice with human proteins or tissues. We will look at how it is possible to select lymphocyte clones producing mouse monoclonal antibodies specific for selected targets and engineer mouse monoclonal antibodies to generate chimeric (mouse/ human) and fully human monoclonal antibodies as therapeutic drugs. By the end of the session you will learn how these drugs work as mechanisms of action.
