A recombinant, fully human monoclonal antibody with antitumor activity constructed from phage-displayed antibody fragments

Nature Biotechnology
G HulsT Logtenberg


A single-chain Fv antibody fragment specific for the tumor-associated Ep-CAM molecule was isolated from a semisynthetic phage display library and converted into an intact, fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody (huMab). The purified huMab had an affinity of 5 nM and effectively mediated tumor cell killing in in vitro and in vivo assays. These experiments show that nonimmunized phage antibody display libraries can be used to obtain high-affinity, functional, and clinically applicable huMabs directed against a tumor-associated antigen.
