A Novel Process for Developing Fully Human Monoclonal Antibodies
The authors describe a process for generating high affinity, fully human antibodies in culture. Specially selected splenocytes are incubated with cytokines and low levels of antigen, yielding affinity-matured, class-switched B cells. The fully human, specific antibodies produced by these cells can then be cloned and expressed for further characterization.
