The first comprehensive and most recent overview of the topic, this ready reference and handbook reviews current knowledge of TAAs, their subclasses, and pinpoints their application areas in medicine. In addition, it emphasizes target identification procedures, the need for an accurate and thorough analysis of the function of TAAs, and the validation of those in clinical settings. The whole is rounded off with an overview of currently approved therapeutic antibodies.

The result is a must–have for biologists and oncologists in science, clinics and industry.
