Could Monoclonal Antibodies Decrease the Efficacy of COVID-19 Prevention?

Post Views: 104 In the study and treatment of infectious diseases like COVID-19 and HIV, understanding the role of antibodies is crucial. These specialised protein molecules, produced by the immune system, act as the body’s defence mechanism. They enhance its ability to fight bacterial and viral invaders by preventing them from attaching to and harming…

How do Polyclonal Antibodies work, and what are their uses? 

Post Views: 792 Antibodies, also known as immunoglobulins (Ig), are essential components of our immune system. They fortify the body’s immune system to combat bacterial, viral, or antigenic infections and prevent them from impacting human cells. Antibodies are Y-shaped immunoglobulin molecules (Ig) produced by B lymphocytes or plasma cells that activate the primary response of…

An Overview of Monoclonal Antibodies and its Applications

Post Views: 1,377 Antibodies or immunoglobulins (Ig) are glycoproteins generated by differentiated B lymphocytes called plasma cells in response to susceptibility to antigens. The diversity of antibody responses to various target antigens is because of the gene recombination process in the hyper-variable areas of antibodies.  Throughout the recombination technique in their genes, antibodies experience gene…

Post Views: 1,881 When discussing gut infections, one often hears “good bacteria” and “bad bacteria”. The distinction is necessary, as not all bacteria are harmful. The gut needs good bacteria to digest food and to balance the load of harmful bacteria that can cause infections. Bacteria are single yet complex cells that do not depend…
