ABSTRACT
Focuses on the relevant targets for therapy with monoclonal antibodies in allograft transplantation. Importance of the use of bioreagents in rejection prophylaxis protocols in preventing recipient immune response; Interaction of orthoclone OKT3 monoclonal antibodies with T-lymphocytes; Role of a rapidly growing list of molecule families in cell adhesion.
