AIMS To investigate the sensitivity of immunohistochemical (IHC) assays for oestrogen receptors (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR) achieved by laboratories on breast tumours fixed and processed in their own department, and to compare this with the degree of sensitivity they achieve on tumours circulated as part of an external quality assessment (EQA) programme. METHODS On 10 occasions between April 1994 and June 1998, histological sections from breast cancers showing various degrees of… CONTINUE READING
