Monoclonal AntibodiesTypes

Naked Monoclonal Antibodies: There is no drug or radioactive material attached to them. These are the most common type of mAbs used to treat cancer. Most of them attach to antigens on cancer cells, but some work by binding to antigens on other, non-cancerous cells, or even free-floating proteins.

Conjugated Monoclonal Antibodies: Monoclonal antibodies joined to a chemotherapy drug or to a radioactive particle are called conjugated monoclonal antibodies.

Cholera Infection Sheet

Globally, cholera cases have increased steadily since 2005 and the disease occurs predominantly in Asia and Africa, with periodic large outbreaks, most recently in Haiti and other parts of the Caribbean (Filion K et al. 2015). The higher incidence can be attributed to poor sanitation and remote access to clean and safe drinking water.
