Quantitation of the immunocytochemical assay for estrogen receptor protein (ER-ICA) in human breast cancer by television imaging.


A Quantimet 720D Image Analysis System has been programmed for light microscopic evaluation of the nuclear estrogen receptor distribution in frozen sections of human breast cancer stained by the peroxidase-antiperoxidase method using monoclonal antibodies to estrogen receptor protein (ER). This method provides precise criteria for distinguishing ER-positive… (More)
