Thymidine labeling index and Ki-67 growth fraction in breast cancer: Comparison and correlation with prognosis


In situ determination of proliferative activity was performed on 184 consecutive primary invasive breast cancers. Methods used were monoclonal antibody Ki-67 in immunohistochemistry and thymidine labeling index. Tumor proliferation correlated between both methods (p = 0.0001). For thymidine labeling index and Ki-67, respectively, significant correlations… (More)
