Unlocking the molecular archive: the emerging use of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue for biomarker research in urological cancer.


Rapid developments have been made in identifying predictive and prognostic markers in urological cancers. Most biomarker profiling has been primarily conducted in fresh-frozen tissue taken at the time of diagnosis or surgery. The disadvantage of this process is that the sampled tissue might not be entirely representative of the tumour and there is a lack of… (More)
