Re: [Histonet] Prostate tumor markers

From:Patti Loykasek

In our practice we use the high molecular weight keratin clone 34BE12 (which
some people mistakenly refer to as CK903 - that is Enzo's catalog number for
this antibody), and we use it with P504S.P504S is generally the more
difficult of the two to interpret. At times we will use a CK5/6 clone D5/16
B4 depending on how our a client's specimens are staining. Hope this helps.
