Abstract

Biotechnological advances have changed the traditional landscape of the drug discovery process. Mutually beneficial relationships between small, innovative and nimble biotechnology companies and experienced, well-funded pharmaceutical companies have resulted in a more rapid application of new technologies to drug development and diversification. Protein-based drugs, such as therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, exemplify the fulfillment of the promise of the biotechnology revolution.
