[Histonet] CK5/6 questions

From:"Kapoor, Sue"

Hello everyone,
My doc just came back from a conference and has some questions pertaining to
CK 5/6....

1. Are folks finding better results using CK 5/6 on cellblock preparations
over using TTF-1 for     mesothelioma?  He was told that TTF-1 is adversely
affected by 95% alcohol fixation, does anyone know of this?

2. Is anyone finding better sensitivity for prostate basal cells over HMW-CK

Much thanks in advance!
