The peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) complex method has repeatedly been claimed to be more sensitive and antibody efficient than the indirect peroxidase labeled antibody method. However, most studies comparing these methods used tissue sections as the test material. However, test systems with known amounts of antigen will allow more reliable comparison of(More)
A consecutive series of 38 lung carcinoid tumours (36 surgical and two necropsy specimens) was studied. Histopathological features and amine and peptide hormone immunoreactivity were correlated with gross characteristics (size, location) and clinical data. Peripheral carcinoids were detected a decade later than central carcinoids and tended to be bigger. In(More)
Fourteen cases of anaplastic carcinoma of the thyroid (ACT) were studied with silver staining and immunohistochemical technics for signs of medullary differentiation. For comparison a series of 11 cases of medullary carcinoma of the thyroid (MCT) was studied. In nine out of 14 cases of ACT both argyrophilia and immunoreactive calcitonin could be detected as(More)
Although used for over one century formalin has several disadvantages which Kryofix, an alternative fixative for paraffin blocks used in Leiden for 6 years, does not have. In this study the effects of Kryofix on tissue regarding immunohistochemistry are compared with those of buffered formalin. All markers studied showed enhanced staining in the Kryofix(More)
A modified method is described for the rapid production of peroxidase-antiperoxidase complexes to be used in immunocytochemistry. In this method anti-peroxidase antibodies are precipitated from crude serum with peroxidase at equivalence and subsequently resolubilized at low pH with excess peroxidase. The complexes are isolated from unbound immunoglobulin(More)
