Introduction Our body constantly exposed to antigens Taken care by IMMUNE SYSTEM 1) Innate – Skin and mucosal barriers, complement, lysozymes , interferons , neutrophills , monocytes , natural killer cells 2) Acquired – T and B cells

Structure of immunoglobulin:

Structure of immunoglobulin

Monoclonal Antibodies:

Monoclonal Antibodies are antibodies that are identical because they were produced by one type of immune cell (B cell), all clones of a single parent cell . Polyclonal antibodies - represent the antibodies from multiple clones of B lymphocytes, and therefore bind to a number of different epitopes e.g. Human gamma globulins

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANTIBODIES Derived from different B Lymphocytes cell lines POLYCLONAL. MONOCLONAL. Derived from a single B cell clone Batch to Batch variation affecting Ab reactivity & titre mab offer Reproducible, Predictable & Potentially inexhaustible supply of Ab with exquisite specificity Enable the development of secure immunoassay systems. NOT Powerful tools for clinical diagnostic tests

Monoclonal antibodies:

Monoclonal antibodies specifically bind to target cells . This may then stimulate the patient's immune system to attack those cells. It is possible to create a mab specific to almost any extracellular/ cell surface target , and thus there is a large amount of research and development currently being undergone to create monoclonals for numerous serious diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and different types of cancers).


Discovery The idea of a " magic bullet " was first proposed by Paul Ehrlich , who, at the beginning of the 20th century, postulated that, a compound can be made that selectively targeted a disease-causing agent

PowerPoint Presentation:

Production of monoclonal antibodies involving human–mouse hybrid cells was described by Jerrold Schwaber in 1973 In 1988, Greg Winter and his team pioneered the techniques to humanize monoclonal antibodies

Production of monoclonal antibodies:

Production of monoclonal antibodies By HYBRIDOMA TECHNIQUE

Purification techniques :

Purification techniques Cells, cell debris, lipids, and clotted material are first removed, typically by filtration with a 0.45 um filter. Chromatography

Types of Monoclonal Antibodies:

Types of Monoclonal Antibodies

Murine antibody:

Murine antibody Whole of the antibody is of murine origin Major problems associated with murine antibodies include reduced stimulation of cytotoxicity Formation of complexes after repeated administration allergic reactions anaphylactic shock

Chimeric antibodies:

Chimeric antibodies Chimeric antibodies are composed of murine variable regions fused onto human constant regions. Antibodies are approximately 65% human. This reduces immunogenicity and thus increases serum half-life .

Humanised mab:

Humanised mab Humanised antibodies are produced by grafting murine hypervariable amino acid domains into human antibodies. This results in a molecule of approximately 95% human origin

Human Monoclonal antibody:

Human Monoclonal antibody Human monoclonal antibodies are produced by transferring human immunoglobulin genes into the murine genome, after which the transgenic mouse is vaccinated against the desired antigen, leading to the production of monoclonal antibodies



Applications of Monoclonal Antibodies:

Applications of Monoclonal Antibodies Diagnostic Applications - Detects protein of interest either by blotting or immunofloroscence Therapeutic Applications Transplant rejection Cancer Autoimmune disorders Inflammatory disease
