Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A bispecific monoclonal antibody is a monoclonal antibody that binds to two different types of antigen. Bispecific monoclonal antibodies do not occur naturally; they must be made in the laboratory.

One benefit of this approach is that it is possible for such an antibody to simultaneously bind to a cytotoxic cell (using a receptor like CD3) and a target cell (like CD19.)[1]

Types of bispecific monoclonal antibodies include trifunctional antibodies and bi-specific T-cell engagers.
