Bispecific antibodies (BsAbs) are a class of bifunctional antibody hybrid molecules. The Fab segments in bivalent antibodies have different specificities and can bind to different ligands. Anti-tumor and anti-immunologically active cells CDl6 or CD3 bispecific antibodies not only have the effect of activating NK cells or T cells, but also can specifically act on tumor cells through anti-tumor Fab segments to increase local NK cell or T cell concentration and enhance the ability of effector molecules to kill tumors.

From driverless cars being rolled out recently to robots performing surgeries, technology has surely made a stellar progress. One such example is medical robots. Medical robots are set to revolutionize the healthcare sector, especially surgeries, since they are becoming more and more acceptable, globally. They not only help in reducing the time of surgery but also ensure the accuracy of the whole process coupled with better quality of patient care, thereby increasing the demand for surgical robots across the globe.
The growth of the Medical Robots Market can be attributed to the issuance of IPOs by medical robot companies, advantages offered by robot-assisted training in rehabilitation therapy, growing hospital investments in medical robots, increasing funding for medical robot research, an…
Enzymes play an irreplaceable and significant role in the field of clinical diagnosis and treatment. The article actually an introduction of enzymes application in clinical diagnosis and treatment.
Enzymes, early referred to the meaning of “in yeast”, is actually a kind of biological catalysts produced by living cells in organisms, most of which are generally globular proteins. The enzymes can efficiently catalyze various biochemical reactions and promote the metabolism of organisms under conditions in the normal body. Life activities such as digestion, absorption, respiration, exercise and reproduction are all enzymatic reactions. Therefore, Enzymes are the basis for cells to survive. There are numerous enzymes in the human body, which are complex in structure and various in variety. As f…

There is a misconception that emails are not that effective in digital marketing anymore. But if properly used, email work very well in all sectors including healthcare. Read on to find a few useful tips for your email marketing campaign.
There was a time not too long ago when people used to have to wait till they got back from work before they could access their personal emails.

And the device where personal emails could be accessed were the laptop or PC at home. But in the last few years, the scenario has changed completely. Smart phones have become ubiquitous and have made it easy for people to access the int…
Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly using contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) to reduce overheads and overall costs, and speed up the drug development timelines. While outsourcing provides several advantages, it also presents many challenges.
1. The challenges Organizations that outsource do not have direct control over the CMO operations. Most of the CMOs deal with multiple clients and their manufacturing, laboratory, & quality systems are designed to allow them maximum flexibility. Additionally, there are different compliance/GMP philosophies. Companies that use CMOs are ultimately responsible for the product quality, safety, efficacy, and cGMP compliance. When issues at the CMOs are identified during audits, the organization that uses the CMOs receive warning letters an…
Beth Gaudin, Senior Consultant and Pharma Lead at Forster Communications, explores how pharma can create an engaged workforce.
An engaged and motivated workforce is near the top of the wish list for almost any employer. It improves turnover, sickness and presenteeism rates, and research has shown that companies with an engaged workforce outperform those without by a whopping 202%[1].   For many businesses, this ambition does not always meet up with the reality. Worldwide just 15% of employees are engaged with the work they do[2]. It’s a constant source of concern not just for HR teams, but for entire companies. No wonder then, that a recent survey found that for 40% of HR professionals thought employee engagement would be one of their biggest challenges for 2019[3].   Recruitm…

Many of us don’t like to think about death, in fact, we avoid the subject where possible. Banishing the taboo around death is important, as, after all, we are all going to die someday, so why aren’t we more open about discussing it?
Many of us don’t like to think about death, in fact, we avoid the subject where possible. Banishing the taboo around death is important, as, after all, we are all going to die someday, so why aren’t we more open about discussing it? The more we talk about death, the easier it will be to normalise the subject and feel less fearful of the unknown. Whether you want to talk about it or not, one aspect of death that you can’t hide from is deciding what you want to happen to your body when you pass. It’s not a particularly pleasant thought but it is one you’ll eventu…
