By Roland E. Kontermann (Ed.),Roland E. Kontermann

The proposal of utilizing bispecific antibodies for melanoma treatment by means of retargeting immune effector cells was once constructed numerous years in the past. preliminary scientific experiences have been relatively disappointing in most cases because of low efficacy, critical unwanted side effects and the immunogenicity of the bispecific antibodies. The development in antibody engineering ultimately ended in the iteration of recent periods of bispecific antibodies missing those hindrances. moreover, new purposes have been confirmed, reminiscent of pre-targeting ideas in radioimmunotherapy and twin focusing on ways with a view to increase binding, selectivity and efficacy.

In this booklet, different methods of producing bispecific antibodies are defined, with emphasis on recombinant codecs. many of the purposes of bispecific antibodies, e.g. in mobile melanoma immunotherapy, radioimmunotherapy and pretargeting concepts are coated, and rising functions corresponding to twin concentrating on innovations, which contain the simultaneous inhibition of 2 ambitions, are addressed.
