Free definitions
A Neutralizing antibody, or NAb is an antibody which defends a cell from an antigen or infectious body by inhibiting or neutralizing any effect it has biologically.


Neutralization, in the context of antibodies, refers to when antibodies bind to antigens and by doing so interfere with their normal physiologic functions or impede the ability of their associated pathogen to cause sickness or injury to the host (usually humans on this Wiki).
