Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Monoclonal antibody manufacture. A scientist examining a bottle containing hybridomas making anti-human-tumour monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies have potential for diagnosis & treatment of disease. They are produced by fusing a lymphocyte from the immune system with a tumour cell; the resulting hybridoma is cloned to produce genetically identical copies, each secret- ing the type of antibody produced by the original lymphocyte. Anti-tumour antibodies produced in this way can be used to attack tumour cells, or to deliver drugs or radioactive isotopes to a tumour, thus increasing specificity & reducing dosage & side effects of chemotherapy & radiation treatment
