While most protein chemists have always viewed such concepts with a reaction ranging from cynicism to outright scorn, many papers were published on the area in the late 1980s. Most involved poor detection systems (largely detecting polyspecific IgM Mabs) and poor, if any, control experiments. It was probably not helpful that many of the target antigens were carbohydrate in nature and susceptible to low-affinity binding. The strategy may yet work well with high-affinity Mabs to protein epitopes.

It is possible that, as the importance of using highaffinity IgG Mabs rather than using the first Mab on offer becomes appreciated, single Mabs or even wider pools of Mabs will improve this success rate in the future. Given the increasing commercial pressure on health authorities not to indulge in high technology work without proven justification, it will be necessary for Mabs to be more closely evaluated. 12. 1. Introduction In terms of both the commercial market and the media, the massive revolution caused by Mabs in basic diagnostic research and the commercial sector largely might not have taken place.
