The Production and Characterization of Monoclonal Antibodies to Lymphokines

  • Kendall A. Smith
Part of the GWUMC Department of Biochemistry Annual Spring Symposia book series (GWUN)


As the experimental procedures and results of the studies presented at this conference are described in detail in a recent publication (Smith et al., 1983), this communication will provide a discussion of the implications of the data. The interested reader is referred to the primary publication for experimental details.
