antibodies [ENGLISH]

Proteins that help fight infections and toxins and are found in the blood. They are made by B lymphocytes. Each antibody binds to a specific part of a protein or antigen. Recently, many biological drugs are comprised of huge quantities of exact copies of one antibody which binds to a specific disease target.
