Antibodies – highly topical molecules

An antibody, also known as an immunoglobulin, is a Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as pathogenic bacteria and viruses.

Immunoglobulin G (IgG)
Immunoglobulin M (IgM)
Immunoglobulin A (IgA)












IgG is the most common type of antibody found in blood circulation.

IgM is the first antibody that our immune system makes to fight a new infection.

IgA is an antibody that occurs in tears, saliva, sweat and colostrum. IgA is in the “first line of defense” against viruses.
