Is any one familiar with the technique of Wright JR et al, Lab Invest 1977; 
36(3):274-281, where they use, I believe, acidified potassium permanganate 
to subclassify amyloid types with Congo red staining?
I've been asked to do this urgently on a case of Inclusion Body Myositis.
I've contacted our library to get a copy of the paper but that may take 
Can anyone help out?
