Biologic agents are polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies and are frequently used in transplantation for induction immunosuppression or treatment of rejection. The 3 antibodies used for induction therapy are the lymphocyte-depleting agents: (1) antithymocyte globulin, (2) alemtuzumab, and (3) basiliximab, which is nondepleting.
