This technology is the subject of a recently announced collaboration between InNexus and Epitomics, a company using rabbit monoclonal antibodies to create novel diagnostics and therapeutics. The review written by Muller, S., Zhao, Y. Brown, T.

This is a first step in a peer-reviewed process leading to the clinical development and eventually the marketing of this totally new use of monoclonal antibodies. Further announcements will be forthcoming on both internal InNexus and sponsored research and progress towards therapeutic application."
