Summary Published in 1997: Antibody Therapeutics is a comprehensive evaluation of progress toward using humanized antibodies as a new generation of therapeutics. The humanized antibodies that have led the way in product approval are discussed as case studies, offering an insight into the preclinical and clinical data acquired during the regulatory approval process. Leading experts offer their findings as examples of what works and what does not, saving you time and making your research more cost effective. This book is essential reading for researchers, clinicians, development and regulatory staff in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and hospital staff, including policy and decision makers. It also provides postgraduate and medical students with an authoritative overview of the field
