Effects of the Workshop Anti-T Cell Monoclonal Antibodies on Lymphocyte Proliferative and Cytotoxic Functions
Evaluation of the functional effects of anti-lymphocyte monoclonal antibodies is important in basic research and in therapy as well. The investigation of molecules involved in lymphocyte functions may contribute to a better understanding of how these cells work. On the other hand, when monoclonal antibodies are given to patients, “peaceful” (non-killing) actions may lead to main or side effects that must be reckoned with.
