[Histonet] Small cell carcinoma

From:"Lynette Pavelich"

I am curious to see what other institutions are using to diagnose small
cell carcinoma in human formalin fixed, paraffin tissue.

I have run into some literature that states that synaptophysin will
stain positive 90% of the time, and in other articles will stain
positive only 50% of the time.  
Are there other antibodies that are more specific that you have found
work better??

Awaiting your knowledge and experience.
