Out of a library with billions of artificial antibodies, researchers have identified 10 that can possibly prevent cancer tumors from growing
Out of a library with billions of artificial antibodies, researchers have identified ten that can possibly prevent cancer tumours from growing.
The figure shows human blood vessel cells (endothelial cells) grown outside the body. When endothelial cells are grown on a mixture of proteins that normally surround blood vessels, they form blood vessel-like structures (right photo). When recombinant antibodies are added, the cells are no longer able to form the blood vessel-like structures (left photo).
