What is antibody?

We constantly face the threat of external factors such as bacteria and viruses, in addition to cancer cells. Antibodies play an important role as key players for standing up to these threats.
Antibodies are produced from plasma cells differentiated from B cells. The produced antibodies bind to specific antigens express in external factors and cancer cells. When an antibody binds to a specific antigen, it removes external factors and cancer cells in a variety of ways.
