Detection of HER2 amplification using the SISH technique in breast, colon, prostate, lung and ovarian carcinoma.

HER2 gene amplification was explored using the silver stain hybridization in situ (SISH) technique in colon, prostate, lung, ovarian and breast carcinomas. Clinical pathological features and immunohistochemical (IHC) expression were evaluated for HER2 in 225 carcinomas. All cases were subjected to SISH investigation. Statistical analysis revealed an… CONTINUE READING
