Antibodies are heavily relied upon tools that can help us identify and explain reactions on a cellular, molecular and biochemical level. Antibody-based approaches are also amongst the most widely used techniques in molecular and cellular neuroscience, allowing us to have a better understanding of a variety of neuroscience processes and neuronal diseases.
With such a broad therapeutic scope, plus significant leaps being made, antibody therapeutics is set to be an area of continuing major growth in the coming years. Although the field has come away with its fair share of disappointing news, researchers are more inspired than ever to utilize this approach to find an appropriate disease-modifying therapy.
In this Spotlight, we will delve deeper into this exciting field by discussing where we are at with development, in addition to exploring clinical uses, challenges and future directions through a range of interviews, journal articles and expert opinions.
