Many antibodies recently developed as therapeutic agents have been tailored by the powerful new recombinant antibody technology, and already their clinical data show highly encouraging results. In Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols, Martin Welschof and Jürgen Krauss present a collection of carefully selected protocols for the design, construction, and characterization of those novel anticancer therapeutics.
Written by seasoned investigators who have successfully verified the particular method described, these readily reproducible methods include coverage of hybridoma-derived recombinant antibodies, recombinant antibody fragments from phagemid-displayed antibody repertoires, antibody fragments with additional properties, and large-scale production of recombinant antibodies for clinical applications. The main focus is on providing detailed protocols that describe these procedures step-by-step, accompanied by a troubleshooting guide discussing possible problems and offering many tips for their potential solutions. Concise review articles also survey the current status of recombinant antibodies in cancer therapy, as well as the generation of antibody molecules through antibody engineering.
Up-to-date and highly practical, Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols surveys the current status of engineered antibodies and describes in rich detail many readily reproducible methods of generating the novel and promising antibody-based reagents of today’s cancer therapy.
