The promising idea of using serum antibodies for diagnosis of cancer is hampered by the heterogeneity of immune response against tumors and by low frequency of serum antibodies against particular autoantigens in cancer patients. Th e low diagnostic value of serum antibodies against tumor-associated autoantigens is the result of the limitations of the methods used for the detecting antibody responses. Current methods of antibody reactivity are designed for detecting high affi nity and/or high titer antibodies. However, a growing tumor may induce a variety of low affi nity and low titer autoantibodies which can not be detected by these methods. We developed a strategy for serum antibody repertoire profi ling, which allows detecting high affi nity/high titer as well as low affi nity/low titer autoantibodies in serum samples. Th is strategy, which we call virtual antigen array, is based on using random peptide phage display library panning on serum antibodies and NextGen sequencing of DNA from antibody bound phage. Th e iterative and amplifi cative nature of phage selection permits identifi cation of antibodies with a broad range of affi nities. Th e next generation sequencing of PCR amplifi ed DNA from antibody bound phage permits detection of binding of a single antibody to a single peptide. Th e identity of the autoantigens recognized by serum autoantibodies is identifi ed by using statistical analysis of BLAST homology search data for peptide sequences recognized by serum antibodies. Th e proposed strategy can be used for developing assays for early detection of cancer and prognosis of clinical outcomes and responses to therapies.
