Antibodies

Antibodies are in the news quite a bit due to the virus. Vaccines are related to T cells and B celks as well. It's complicated.

I decided to look up how drugs like Humira are made. It has a specific target, but the procedure is the same. A cancerous blood cell line is used so that they can be grown in cell culture.

This would be given to people already sick. Relies on the RNA/other test. Unusual situation for a virus.
