Although there is general agreement that immunohistochemical methods can aid in the pathologic diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma, some studies have produced conflicting results. To obtain comparable and reproducible results, unequivocal malignant mesotheliomas were studied with the biotin-streptavidin-peroxidase complex method in 14 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue specimens, 5 ethanol-fixed smear slides and 3 cold acetone-fixed smear slides. The expression of CA-125, epithelial… CONTINUE READING
