ZusammenfassungDem Immunphänotyp kommt bei der histogenetischen Zuordnung von Karzinomen wachsende Bedeutung zu. Für Cholangiokarzinome (CC) trifft dies zum einen aufgrund der zunehmenden Zahl kleiner diagnostischer Proben mit eingeschränkter morphologischer Aussagekraft zu, zum anderen treten in der Leber eine Vielzahl metastasierter Adenokarzinome mit morphologischen Überlappungen zum CC auf. Zur Immunphänotypisierung von Tumoren können Intermediärfilamente, Glykoproteine, Mukoproteine, Adh… Expand

Pitfalls in der Klassifikation von Lebertumoren
Difficulties in histological typing of liver tumors, particularly in the differential diagnosis between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CC) can be minimized by using immunohistochemistry. Expand
In combination with the fact that a primary tumor cannot be identified by autopsy in more than 20 % of cases, the important conclusion can be drawn that curative approaches seem appropriate for localized CUP cases. Expand
Identification of Novel Biomarker Candidates for the Immunohistochemical Diagnosis of Cholangiocellular Carcinoma*
This study concludes that stress-induced phosphoprotein 1 should be considered as a potential diagnostic biomarker for CCC in an immunohistochemical application, possibly in combination with other candidates from this study in the form of a biomarker panel. Expand


Immunohistochemical Staining in the Diagnosis of Pancreatobiliary and Ampulla of Vater Adenocarcinoma: Application of CDX2, CK17, MUC1, and MUC2
It is concluded that CK17 is a useful marker in separating pancreatobiliary adenocarcinomas from extra-pancreatobiliary nonmucinousAdenocARCinomas, including adenOCarc inomas from the colon, breast, gynecologic organs, stomach, lung, prostate, thyroid, kidney, and adrenal gland, and malignant mesothelioma.

CDX2, a Highly Sensitive and Specific Marker of Adenocarcinomas of Intestinal Origin: An Immunohistochemical Survey of 476 Primary and Metastatic Carcinomas
Uniform CDX2 expression is demonstrated to be an exquisitely sensitive and highly, but incompletely, specific marker of intestinal adenocarcinomas in primary and metastatic epithelial tumors. Expand
Cytokeratin 7 and 20 expression in cholangiocarcinomas varies along the biliary tract but still differs from that in colorectal carcinoma metastasis.
The CK immunoprofile of CC varies according to the location of the tumor in the biliary tract, peripheral CC being more often CK7/CK20-, and nonperipheral ones CK7+/Ck20+; and a decision tree based on CK20 LI and CK7 positivity allows the distinction of CRM and CC, even for the nonPeripheral type.

Aberrant expression of CDX2 is closely related to the intestinal metaplasia and MUC2 expression in intraductal papillary neoplasm of the liver in hepatolithiasis
Aberrant expression of CDX2 is closely related to the overexpression of MUC2 in mucinous ICC and IPNL associated with hepatolithiasia, suggesting its role in intestinal differentiation and its association with carcinogenesis in these tumors. Expand
Combined Hepatocellular–Cholangiocarcinoma: A Histopathologic, Immunohistochemical, and In Situ Hybridization Study
Clinically, CHCs showed many differences from pure hepatocellular carcinoma, including the absence of cirrhosis, rarity of serum hepatitis B or C marker positivity, and normal to only mildly elevated serum alpha-fetoprotein levels, which proves that such an interpretation would not have been accurate.

Immunohistochemistry Can Help Distinguish Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinomas From Bile Duct Adenomas and Hamartomas of the Liver
MCEA showed a reasonably high sensitivity and 100% specificity in the differential diagnosis versus BDA, and p53, TAG-72, mCEA, loss of Dpc4, and mesothelin had the highest specificity for pancreatic adenocarcinoma, with m CEA having the highest sensitivity. Expand
Expression of T/NK-cell and plasma cell antigens in nonhematopoietic epithelioid neoplasms. An immunohistochemical study of 447 cases.
Overexpression of CD56 antigen was detected mainly in neuroendocrine tumors or adenocarcinomas with neuro endocrine differentiation, and its consistent overexpression in adrenal cortical and thyroid tumors may have diagnostic usefulness. Expand
Cytokeratin 5/6 Immunostaining in Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Neoplasms
For the evaluation of poorly differentiated neoplasms in the liver, immunoreactivity with cytokeratin 5/6 may help to exclude the possibility of hepatocellular carcinoma. Expand
Expression of T/NK-Cell and Plasma Cell Antigens in Nonhematopoietic Epithelioid Neoplasms
Overexpression of CD56 antigen was detected mainly in neuroendocrine tumors or adenocarcinomas with neuro endocrine differentiation, and its consistent overexpression in adrenal cortical and thyroid tumors may have diagnostic usefulness. Expand
Mutations of p53 Tumor Suppressor Gene, Apoptosis, and Proliferation in Intrahepatic Cholangiocellular Carcinoma of the Liver
It is indicated that p53 could serve as an additional prognostic parameter that could provide auxiliary information for patient outcome and failed to establish apoptosis or other pathological parameters as factors predicting the prognosis of patients with cholangiocellular carcinoma. Expand
