Re: [Histonet] Immunoperoxidase on FFPE for Lyme disease

From:"Richard Cartun"

Yes, I do IHC for Borrelia burgdorferi.  Although we have been
successful in detecting the spirochete in animal tissue, I have never
seen a positive human tissue.  Therefore, I'm not sure I would recommend
doing it.

The season is starting for Lyme disease. Is anyone performing
immunostaining to demonstrate B. burgdoferi on FFPE tissue?
