The Use of Human Monoclonal Antibodies to Identify and Isolate Breast Tumor Associated Antigens

  • Anthony J. Strelkauskas
  • Paul H. Aldenderfer


One of the greatest challenges in breast cancer research today involves the identification and isolation of breast cancer antigens. The study of antigens associated with these malignancies has been ongoing for years.
