The murine monoclonal anti-T-cell antibody, OKT3, has been used during the past 9 years in various clinical transplantation studies. Its use in clinical organ transplantation has advanced the science of MoAb use in humans and has provided a vast amount of evidence substantiating the importance of MoAbs in clinical medicine.
