We assessed the reliability of prognostic biologic markers by means of immunohistochemistry on cell blocks obtained from diagnostic fine-needle cytopunctures of breast carcinomas and their lymph node metastases.Immunohistochemical studies of MIB-1 (Ki-67), estrogen receptors (ER), progesterone receptors (PR), p53, and c-erb-B-2 were performed in 55 cases of primary breast carcinoma on cell blocks (cytoblock technique) and on their corresponding tissue samples (46 mastectomy specimens and 9… CONTINUE READING
