Human Complement-Fixing Antibodies in Transplantation

  • G. Hale
  • H. Waldmann

Abstract

It is widely expected that monoclonal antibodies will find many applications in transplantation. They certainly offer significant advantages of exquisite (even if not always predictable) specificity and continuous availability compared with polyclonal antisera. Four major categories of use will be considered here.
