Category Archives: Immunohistochemistry or IHC

Often used to diagnose cancer, Immunohistochemistry or IHC is a process by which antibodies are detected in tissue samples by use of a specific antigen or antigens. IHC is also widely used in basic research to understand the distribution and localization of biomarkers in different parts of a tissue (also see “Serum Marker/Blood Test“).

Questioning the Prognostic Role of BAP-1 Immunohistochemistry in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Single Center Experience With Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Survivin Expression as an Independent Predictor of Overall Survival in Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Oncology Letters 2020 June [Link] Guozun Zhang, Dong-Liang Yang, Guoqi Zheng, Yufei Liang Abstract Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPeM) is an incurable cancer strongly associated with asbestos exposure and characterised by poor prognosis. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the prognostic and predictive value of CD146 and survivin expression in MPeM. Diagnostic biopsies […]

Prognostic and clinicopathological utility of programmed death-ligand 1 in malignant pleural mesothelioma: A meta-analysis.

International Immunopharmacology 2020 April 24 [Link] Zhang F, Gong W Abstract OBJECTIVE:Programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) has been reported to be connected to prognosis in individuals with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), although there is no consensus based on data from previous studies. Accordingly, this quantitative meta-analysis investigated prognostic and clinicopathological utility of PD-L1 in patients […]
