INN the background

Client: Ab Society

Project: Infographic to explain the diverse background of antibodies used in therapy, to be published in the International Nonproprietary Names (INN) for therapeutic antibodies in mAbs (June 2017).

Software: Adobe Illustrator.

The idea was to give an overview of the vast increase in antibody innovations in sources, engineering options and platforms over the past decades. The figure shows an expanding toolbox for the generation of therapeutic antibodies that meet modern biopharmaceutical requirements. Therapeutic antibodies can be generated in many ways and capturing an antibody’s source in a single syllable is therefore no longer possible.
