Abciximab also reduced the incidence of clinical restenosis when compared with placebo during a 6-month follow-up of these patients (33). Monoclonal antibodies have been widely used for the diagnosis, localization, and treatment of cancer (34). Their advantages include a relative selectivity for tumor tissue coupled with a relative lack of toxicity. However, their ability to affect tumors is minimal unless aided by other mechanisms, the amount of antibody delivered to tumors is low, and the diffusion of antibody through tumors is often poor.

Validity means that accepted models, either so established in the literature or through appropriate defensible studies conducted in one’s own laboratories, should be used. Nevertheless, there are always inherent dangers in being totally confident that any animal model will be predictive of a drug’s efficacy in humans. For example, the reversal of tetrabenazine-induced sedation and ptosis in mice has been routinely used in some laboratories as a reliable and predictive test for antidepressant activity in humans.

The next building block is added, and the process continues until the desired combinatorial library has been assembled. Each bead in the library holds multiple copies of a single library member (12). Split synthesis is generally used to produce small quantities of a relatively large number of compounds, requires a solid support, and permits assays to be performed on pools of compounds. The second method for creating combinatorial libraries is parallel synthesis. In this process, which is usually automated, compounds are synthesized in separate vessels (most recently microtiter plates, but solid support can be used) with- Copyright 2002 by Marcel Dekker.
