Monoclonal antibody therapies are promising treatments for chronic disorders because they identify specific disease-causing molecules and train the immune system to clear them from the body. However, designing effective antibody-based therapeutics that elicit the appropriate response in patients is challenging. Scientists rely on cutting-edge technologies to develop and test every aspect of their candidate therapeutics.
In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist’s Creative Services Team, Gestur Vidarsson and Pontus Nordenfelt will highlight how antibodies modulate immune responses in a disease context, and discuss what is left to learn about functional antibody therapeutic development.
Topics to be covered
- How naturally regulated variations of N-linked glycans in the IgG constant region influence effector functions
- Antibacterial antibodies as an example of developing and understanding functional antibodies
