Monoclonal antibody technology, which allows the unlimited production of an antibody with a very defined specificity, has resulted in a renewed interest in passive immunization as a treatment alternative for disease. However, to date, the widespread implementation of monoclonal antibodies for prophylactic or therapeutic use has not occurred. Because of the acceptance of passive immunization in animal health care as can be demonstrated from the sale of conventional antisera for such use, we were encouraged that monoclonal antibodies could find significant use in veterinary health care.
