Low molecular weight cytokeratin (LCK) and high molecular weight cytokeratin (HCK) were analyzed by immunohistochemistry using two monoclonal antibodies in 90 patients with operable invasive breast carcinoma (IBC). Fifty-nine (65.6%) of 90 tumors were LCK-positive, and 19 (21.1%) were HCK-positive. The incidence of LCK positivity was inversely correlated with nuclear or histological grade, however, the incidence of HCK positivity was positively correlated. The positive correlation of the… CONTINUE READING
