Treatment with monoclonal antibodies is becoming increasingly important in clinical oncology. These 
antibodies specifically inhibit signaling pathways in tumor growth and/or induce immunological responses 
against tumor cells. By combining monoclonal antibodies several pathways may be targeted simultane
-ously, potentially leading to additive or synergistic effects. BiotechSino focuses on the creation of antibody
-based drugs for the targeted treatment of infectious disease. Most domestic research on combination 
therapies is still in an early stage, but it is expected that the use of combination therapy of antibodies 
will become standard 
of care in the near future.

Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases kill more people worldwide than any other single cause. Infectious diseases are caused 
by germs. Germs are tiny living things that are found everywhere - in air, soil and water. You can get 
infected by touching, 
eating, drinking or breathing something that contains a germ. Germs can also spread 
through animal and insect bites, kissing and sexual contact. Vaccines, proper 
hand washing and medicines 
can help prevent infections.

There are four main kinds of germs:

•       Bacteria - one-celled germs that multiply quickly and may release chemicals which can make you sick

•       Viruses - capsules that contain genetic material, and use your own cells to multiply

•       Fungi - primitive plants, like mushrooms or mildew

•       Protozoa - one-celled animals that use other living things for food and a place to live
