Monoclonal antibodies directed against human estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) have been used extensively for biochemical and immunohistochemical detection of receptors independent of hormone-binding assays. These antibodies have been valuable both for experimental work and for detection of receptors in clinical breast cancer specimens.(More)
Identification of metastasis and occult micrometastases of breast cancer demands sensitive and specific diagnostic markers. In this study, we assessed the utility of a mouse monoclonal antibody to human mammaglobin for one such purpose. Immunohistochemical stains were performed on paraffin-embedded sections from a total of 284 cases, which consisted of(More)
AIMS Assessment of hormone receptor expression is part of routine examination of every breast cancer. In this study, we report the characterisation of a novel rabbit monoclonal antibody, clone EP1, directed against oestrogen receptor (ER) α. Additionally, its immunohistochemical performance characteristics in archival tissues are evaluated in normal tissues(More)
