  • CD10 facilitates the diagnosis of metastatic renal cell carcin. (mysciencework.com)
  • To facilitate the accurate diagnosis of metastatic RCC in adrenal FNA, we retrospectively studied the cytomorphology and CD10 immunohistochemistry in 20 cases of FNA specimens, including 10 cases of adrenal FNA (six cases of metastatic RCC and four cases of primary ACN) and 10 cases of primary RCC. (mysciencework.com)
  • Our study indicates that: 1) an accurate diagnosis of ACN in FNA specimens can often be difficult due to overlapping cytomorphologic features with RCC, and 2) CD10 immunostaining is helpful in separating metastatic RCC from a primary ACN and can reliably be performed on a cytologic sample.

(sbir.gov)
  • Since preliminary studies using a BAC-based probe panel designed by CGI revealed good differential diagnosis of the four histologic subtypes, the sensitivity, sp ecificity, positive and negative predictive values of the probe panel will be validated in a cohort of 145 biopsies obtained from resected specimens with known but blinded morphology by standard pathology.
