HAMA produced following therapeutic murine
monoclonal antibody treatment may reduce the
effectiveness of the monoclonal antibody therapy,
or cause anaphylactic complications during
subsequent rounds of treatment. HAMA may also be
detected in a small percentage of the general
population, and usually represent heterophilic
antibodies or dietary exposure to murine proteins.
