Screening humanized antibodies from a human Fab phage display library is an effective and quick method to obtain beta-amyloid oligomers. Thus, a recent study published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 33, 2013) successfully constructed a na´ve human Fab library and obtained a human Fab antibody and a single-domain antibody that specifically recognized amyloid-beta (Aβ)42 oligomers.
