RE: [Histonet] FW: [IHCRG] Very important question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

From:"Houston, Ronnie"

Where did this come from?

The inclusion for Erbitux treatment depends on a POSITIVE reaction to the
DakoCytomation EGFR pharmDx, no more no less. There has never been any
discussion about grading the reaction either semi-quantitatively or

I suggest that those grading their test results are not using this kit. Dako
make it very clear to their clients on how to interpret the test results.

not to second guess you,but i have been told (2days ago) that labs are not
reading results (kit or not) correctly and that this is not graded like her2
(even though it is called her1)so weak positivity is really positive not
neg, so studies should be done carefully.        dana
