Do we have a quantum field theory of monopoles?

Recently, I read a review on magnetic monopole published in late 1970s, wherein some conjectures of properties possibly possessed by a longingly desired quantum field theory of monopoles are stated.

My question is what our contemporary understanding of the quantum field theory of monopoles is. Do we have a fully developed one? Any useful ref. is also helpful. Thanks!

Welcome to PF;
A quick google for "monopoles QFT" shows lots of references for you to look at - like:
