As a scientific discipline, biomimetics has potential applications in various research fields for improving human lives. The advances in research on human and animal immune systems and immunological mechanisms have helped develop a lot of approaches in preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases. By studying the biomimetic models and materials mimicking the components of those systems, we have advanced our knowledge and skills in developing new products for pharmaceutical and medical applications. Therefore, immunology and biomimetics of immune systems may have limitless potential applications in health sciences. This review focuses on the application of biomimetic antibodies and monoclonal antibodies to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.


Biomimetics, monoclonal antibody, immune system.
