Therapeutic antibodies can bind disease relevant target molecules or attach themselves to pathogens. Modern life science aims to exploit this basic function of antibodies to improve patients’ lives. Therapeutic antibodies likewise can link different stories together, different people, their professions, sometimes their entire lives: patients, doctors, scientists, investors and many more.

In the context of our Annual Report 2012 antibodies figuratively build bridges between print and online media. You will find several references and links to additional background information online.

we encourage you, dear reader, to explore these connections.
