Bispecifics and how they work
A normal antibody can bind one specific target (i.e. it has one specificity). A bispecific is an engineered protein that is composed of two different antibodies or parts of antibodies that are fused together so that the engineered protein (a bispecific) can bind two different targets at the same time (i.e. it has two specificities).
Imunexus is developing its bispecific technology to make new medicines that are potentially more effective in treating specific diseases.
