Special Stains for Alzheimer's Disease
Please help me with this inquiry.
A patient from the hospital has a pre-op of Alzheimer's Disease. We have a portion of cerebral tissue to work with. My pathologist requires the following stains to be done:
1. A stain for beta amyloid to characterize neuritic plaques.
2. A stain for tau paired helical filaments to characterize neurofibrillary tangles.
3. A stain for alpha synuclein to look for Lewy bodies.
Which stains are we required to do to represent these elements? The only stain I am familiar with is the Belchowski (spelling check) stain.
All suggestions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
