As many patients with mammary carcinoma are now treated by conservative forms of surgery, there is a need for prognostic information obtainable from the primary tumour alone. One possible source is the antigenic profile of tumour cells. Using an indirect immunoperoxidase technique, we stained histological sections of the primary tumour from 175 patients with each of two monoclonal antibodies (HMFG-1, HMFG-2), raised against milk fat globule membrane antigens known to be preserved in formalin… CONTINUE READING
