Re: [Histonet] Small cell carcinoma

From:"Lynette Pavelich"

Sorry if there was any confusion, our docs usually order a sort of panel
to decifer small cell v/s non-small cell.  They will order AE1/AE3, CK7,
CK20, TTF-1, NSE, Synaptophysin, and Chromogranin.

Do any of you have any other suggestions for antibodies that might help
to pin-point  small cell carcinoma?

thanks again,

We do not do just the synapto, but also chromogranin and NSE.

Subject: [Histonet] Small cell carcinoma

 am curious to see what other institutions are using to diagnose small
ell carcinoma in human formalin fixed, paraffin tissue.
I have run into some literature that states that synaptophysin will
tain positive 90% of the time, and in other articles will stain
ositive only 50% of the time.  
re there other antibodies that are more specific that you have found
ork better??
Awaiting your knowledge and experience.
