A bispecific monoclonal antibody is an artificial protein that is composed of fragments of two different monoclonal antibodies so it can bind to two different types of antigens. In cancer immunotherapy the bispecific monoclonal antibody is engineered to simultaneously bind to a cytotoxic cell and to a targeted tumor cell identified to be destroyed.
The antibody is showcased on the bilayer membrane of a macrophage, with its bispecific "smart bombs" ready to bind to its designated antigens.
