Immunohistochemistry: when to use it and why
Immunohistochemistry is an integral technique in many veterinary laboratories for diagnostic and research purposes. In the last decade, the ability to detect antigens (Ags) in tissue sections has improved dramatically. The variable behaviour of mast cell tumours and melanomas in dogs makes it difficult for many veterinary practitioners to offer their clients an accurate prognosis and the best treatment. Knowing when Immunohistochemistry should be used and why Pathologists request it will be outlined in detail by Lorna.
