What drug that suppresses of memory B cells?

Any chance you could use monoclonal antibodies to neutralize the target cells? E.g. some column depletion system if you are working in vitro? For in vivo experiments (in animals) you might have some luck with antibody-based drugs that are normally used to treat B cell malignancies. ...
