To the Editor : It is with great satisfaction that we read the paper by Richardson et al [1], describing ‘carefully optimised conditions’ for the detection of enteroviral antigens using immunohistochemistry (IHC) on formalin sections of the human pancreas. In their paper, the authors recommend performing IHC under conditions that are markedly different from the previously used standard protocol, involving pre-treatment of the formalin slides using a solution at a pH of 6 instead of 8 during… CONTINUE READING
