The use of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) has changed the way biotechnology and medicine are done. These antibodies are very specific. Because of this, mAbs can be used for a lot of different things in research, diagnosis, and therapy, such as treating cancer, autoimmune diseases, and infectious diseases.
In this MCQ on Monoclonal Antibodies blog post, we’ll talk about the basics of monoclonal antibodies and give you some multiple-choice questions to see how much you know. So, if you want to find out more about this cool technology, let’s get started!
