Helix Pomatia (HPA) and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) staining were studied in 113 primary breast carcinomas, 63 metastatic lymph nodes and 10 resected local recurrences, using the avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (ABC) method. Positive percentage rates were 41 (46/113) for HPA and 24 (27/113) for CEA in primary tumors, and 80 (8/10) for HPA but only 10 (1/10) for CEA in metastatic lesions. HPA staining showed a statistically significant correlation with negative estrogen receptor (ER) status… CONTINUE READING
