The ability to label antigens and antibodies with simple chemicals and even with whole proteins fostered new approaches to basic studies of the immune system as well as new methods of immunodiagnosis and immunotherapy. This was especially true following the introduction of monoclonal antibodies, which enhanced the specificity of many of these applications. The uses to which these labeled immunoreagents were put were legion, and those who employed them might come from any field of biology or… 
Antibodies for Nuclear Medicine Therapy
TLDR
This chapter provides a brief overview of how radioimmunoconjugates have progressed and the potential for their future.

TLDR
High specificity and high affinity binding properties of mAbs make them effective biological reagents in immunodiagnostic assays and become a novel way of targeting antigens in a wide variety of diseases such as autoimmunity, malignancies, and asthma.
Introduction on Monoclonal Antibodies

High specificity and high affinity binding properties of mAbs make them effective biological reagents in immunodiagnostic assays and become a novel way of targeting antigens in a wide variety of diseases such as autoimmunity, malignancies, and asthma.
Targeted Therapy of Cancer: New Prospects for Antibodies and Immunoconjugates
TLDR
How antibodies and immunoconjugates have influenced cancer detection and therapy is reviewed, and promising new developments and challenges for broader applications are described.
Antibody Labeling with Fluorescent Dyes Using Magnetic Protein A and Protein G Beads.
TLDR
This approach utilizes high capacity magnetic Protein A and Protein G affinity beads to capture antibodies from the cell media followed by labeling with small molecules using either amine or thiol chemistry and subsequent elution of the labeled antibodies.
Complexity of anti-immunosenescence strategies in humans.
TLDR
The complexity of a rejuvenation approach is stressed, with particular attention to the inhibitory role played by the "old microenvironment" on the performance of progenitor cells, the best candidate to counteract the decline in regenerative potential characteristic of organs and tissues from old organisms.
On-bead antibody-small molecule conjugation using high-capacity magnetic beads.
TLDR
On-bead conjugation enables simple and rapid processing of multiple samples in parallel with high-efficiency antibody recovery and it is shown that recovered antibodies are functional and compatible with downstream applications.
Immunological Methods for Nursing Research: From Cells to Systems
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to discuss established and evolving IMs and to illustrate the application of these methods to nursing research.
Development of a covalent site-specific antibody labeling strategy by the use of photoactivable Z domains
Traditionally, labeling of antibodies has been performed by covalent conjugation to amine or carboxyl groups. These methods are efficient but suffer from nonspecificity, since all free and available
Bifunctional Ligands that Target Cells Displaying the αvβ3 Integrin

Immunotoxins: selection of cell-surface antigens and their corresponding monoclonal antibodies.
TLDR
This chapter will focus on target antigens and their corresponding monoclonal antibodies, defined as an antibody coupled to a protein toxin (including A chains and hemitoxins), although mention will also be made of antigen-toxin conjugates.
Monoclonal antibodies and the FACS: complementary tools for immunobiology and medicine.
The histories of monoclonal antibodies and the fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS) are as closely intertwined as their current uses in biology and medicine. Here, Leonore Herzenberg, Stephen De

TLDR
Although nonspecific toxicity and immunogenicity still limit the use of IT therapy, these agents hold enormous promise in an optimal setting to treat minimal disease.
Chelates and antibodies: current methods and new directions.
TLDR
Detailed development of the chemistry of iodination methods and the general utility of iodine-based radioimmunoassays resulted in radioiodination becoming a familiar tool in most biochemistry laboratories.
Toxicity of diphtheria toxin for lymphoblastoid cells is increased by conjugation to antilymphocytic globulin
TLDR
Diphtheria toxin is used because the paucity of tumour-specific antigens, accentuated, perhaps, by their restricted accessibility in solid tumours, necessitates the use of the most potent cytotoxins available.

STUDIES ON ANTIBODY PRODUCTION I. A METHOD FOR THE HISTOCHEMICAL DEMONSTRATION OF SPECIFIC ANTIBODY AND ITS APPLICATION TO A STUDY OF THE HYPERIMMUNE RABBIT
TLDR
Small amounts of antibody were occasionally visible in cells in the lymphoid follicles of the spleen and lymph nodes, so that a minor contribution by lymphocytes to antibody synthesis cannot be excluded.

TLDR
The ability to screen for antigen binding by displaying immunoglobulin variable regions on the surface of filamentous bacteriaphages has opened up the possibility of bypassing the immune system to generate novel antibody specificities in vitro.

Direct immunoenzyme double staining applicable for monoclonal antibodies
TLDR
A novel method for immunoenzymatic double staining was developed, using primary antibodies directly labeled with either horseradish peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase, which opens the possibility to performdouble staining with two monoclonal antibodies.
