Re: ER/PR manual scoring

From:Richard Cartun

See "Prognostic and predictive factors in breast cancer by
immunohistochemical analysis" by D. Craig Allred et al. in Modern
Pathology 1998;11(2):155-165.  This is the system that we use.

The Dept Head has sent me chasing after an article.  Maybe anyone in
histo can help??? PLEASE!!  He's looking for an article that has a chart
that shows how to grade ER/PR by IHC the manual way- not through image
analysis.  He thinks it was in the Journal of Histo. in the last 10-15
years.  I went through our shelves, Ovid, Medline, Pathmax and even
spent some time searching on the immuno hypermart and I've turned up
ZIP!  Needless to say, I'm very frustrated.  I even tried calling CAP
and asking if they have a guideline when they score the CAP surveys.... 
  Please, anyone out there- please give me good news come next week. 
Thank you in advance,
