This book brings together the latest research of antibody design. Complete with illustrations, the text describes techniques, examines the kinds of new antibodies, and studies their applications in medicine and science. Although not intended as a step-by-step laboratory manual, the book is developed around strategies employed to design antibodies. The author presents sufficient background material, making the text readable to students and non-immunologists. However, experts researching specific aspects of antibody design will value the innovative approaches and applications used by investigators in other areas of this rapidly progressing, far-reaching field. The book describes how certain characteristics of antibody structure and action make antibodies particularly amenable to designing them with specific properties; explains how antibodies can be designed to meet a wide variety of applications in science and medicine, including tumour targeting, diagnostic imaging and catalyzing assorted reactions.
