Over the last thirty years, therapeutic antibodies have gone from “not existing” to being the world’s top prescription drugs, largely through their ability to bring protein-protein interactions into play in medicine. This Special Issue of Antibodies charts the rise of therapeutic antibodies and acknowledges the technological hurdles that have been overcome to make them front line therapies. In addition, we will address the limitations of such products, such as potential immunogenicity, supply chain complexity and cost of treatment. Finally the Special Issue will cover alternative therapeutic modalities, which represent potential disruptive technologies for antibodies in the future.
