Rabbit monoclonal antibody: potential application in cancer therapy

By Lifeng Feng, Xian Wang and Hongchuan Jin

Abstract

By targeting antigens specifically, monoclonal antibodies represent a new class of therapeutic agents for the clinical management of various diseases including cancers. Monoclonal antibody technology has been greatly developed by reducing murine content in antibodies to minimize side effects in clinical applications. However, several intrinsic disadvantages of antibodies with murine origin limit the clinical efficacy of monoclonal antibodies based targeted therapy. The development of rabbit monoclonal antibody technology provides an alternative source of monoclonal antibodies with higher specificity and less cost for the development of routine targeted therapy against cancers
