Anti-idiotypic MAbs offer a similar advantage in immunizing against nonprotein tumor antigens. B-cell responses to nonprotein antigens (T-cell independent) are generally low-titer, transient IgM responses. Anti-idiotypic MAbs that mimic nonprotein antigens represent a xenogeneic protein mimic that can be more immunogenic than the original nonprotein antigen. Presumably, one of the ways this could occur is that the anti-idiotypic MAb can provide TH cell epitopes, which the B cell can present to TH cells through its MHC class II molecules.
