Identification of proliferating cells in human gliomas using the monoclonal antibody Ki-67.


Ki-67 is a monoclonal antibody directed against a nuclear antigen present only in proliferating cells in the G1, S, G2, and M phases of the cell cycle. Fifty-one frozen glioma specimens were stained with Ki-67 using the avidin-biotin immunoperoxidase system. For each tumor, six different randomly selected fields were examined. The percentage of Ki-67… (More)
