Statement of Need

Recent years have seen an increase in the number of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that are available to treat a variety of conditions caused by immune-mediated chronic inflammation such as psoriasis. Health care professionals are often presented with complex and conflicting information surrounding concepts of mAb production and immunogenicity; therefore, there is a significant need for education in this area, especially as distinguishing the relative clinical efficacy and safety profiles of one mAb relative to another can be difficult and complex due to different clinical designs and a lack of head-to-head comparator studies.

In this CME Outfitters interactive infographic expert faculty evaluates the development of mAbs and antidrug antibodies (ADAs) by analyzing the history of and present-day inconsistencies in the nomenclature and their effects on therapeutic response.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate processes utilized to develop monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), including principles of design and modification as well as technologies used in production.
  • Analyze the history of and present-day inconsistencies in the nomenclature of mAbs in order to increase understanding of the clinical characteristics of specific molecules.
  • Integrate insights into the development of antidrug antibodies (ADAs), their effects on therapeutic response, and advances in laboratory detection of them into clinical practice.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Evaluate processes utilized to develop monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), including principles of design and modification as well as technologies used in production.
  • Analyze the history of and present-day inconsistencies in the nomenclature of mAbs in order to increase understanding of the clinical characteristics of special molecules.
  • Explain how to integrate insights into the development of antidrug antibodies (ADAs), their effects on therapeutic response, and advances in laboratory detection of them into clinical practice.
