Identification and Semi-Quantification of Ki-67 Protein Expression Status

2016-01-14 12:53:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is the identification and semi-quantification of Ki-67 protein expression level in breast cancer tissues by the GenASIs GoPth system as compared to manual reading of the same slides.

The imaging system is intended for diagnostic use as an aid to the pathologist in the detection, counting and classifying ER/PR IHC stained samples

Description

The anti Ki-67 is a semi-quantitative immunohistochemical (IHC) assay to identify the Ki-67 protein expressions in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue specimens. Results from the Ki-67 test is indicated as an aid in the assessment of the protein status of breast cancer patients. While the p53 kit provides the antibody that offer direct visualization and semi-quantification of the protein expression through a brightfield microscope, the GenASIs GoPath system is designed to complement the routine workflow of the pathologist in the analysis and review of immunohistochemically stained histologic slides.

A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
