4 Monoclonal antibodies Another milestone achieved in the beginning of the twentieth century was the making of monoclonal antibodies, which was proposed by Paul Ehrlich. He suggested that drug compounds can be accurately, precisely, and specifically delivered along with monoclonal antibodies. 6). 6 Making of monoclonal antibodies. of applications, especially to detect or purify that substance (antigen), and has become an important tool in diagnostics and biomedical research. In diagnostics and biomedical research, monoclonal antibodies are very useful tools.

His experiments supported the germ theory of disease. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to treat milk and wine in order to prevent it from causing sickness, a process that came to be called pasteurization.

Later on, Sir Fleming hypothesized that the mold was releasing a substance that was preventing the growth and could contain a substance with antibiotic properties. In order to prove his hypothesis, he grew a pure culture and discovered the first antibiotic substance from the Penicillium mold, known as Penicillium notatum. Sir Alexander showed that P. notatum when grown in the appropriate substrate caused the release of chemical substances and these chemical substances were named as antibiotics.
