Repeating this cycle a few times creates antibodies that strongly bind to their target and, in theory, could be used as a drug.
Source: Popular information. Phage display can be used to produce new pharmaceuticals for hard to treat illnesses such as autoimmune diseases and cancer. Phage display has created an entirely new way to make antibodies. In , the first drug made entirely by phage display was approved. But it is still early days for antibody drugs and their potential is huge.
Welcome to the group Chris | BlakeyLab
Scientists are now trying to find antibodies to kill cancer cells or treat anthrax. Phage display is essentially a different type of directed evolution.

Currently, there are more efficient methods to detect pathogenic bacteria contamination in food using the multi-polymerase chain reaction, which takes one to two days, requires less manpower, is able to detect large amounts of food simultaneously, and is able to detect up to three foodborne bacteria per test. Furthermore, the reaction tube is easy to use and can be stored for a prolonged amount of time at room temperature as the mixture for the polymerase chain reaction used to detect the three foodborne bacteria are in dry powder form and are coated on the inner surface of the tube.
It is also easy to transport and is in a ready-to-use tube that can be used immediately after adding the DNA solution extracted from food. This invention is a mixture of dry powder, which is composed of suitable ingredients solely for the polymerase chain reaction within a tube specifically for polymerase chain reactions. The mixture in the tube can be used to simultaneously detect the aforementioned foodborne bacteria with one detection, and can reduce time spent to detect foodborne bacteria, decrease labor and chemical costs, and facilitate transportation of such solutions.
