Immunohistochemical studies using epithelial markers have recently been published which identified micrometastases in lymph nodes that had not been found on routine pathological assessment, therefore increasing the accuracy of staging of non-small cell lung cancers. The presence of these micrometastases was associated with reduced survival. We have therefore performed a retrospective immunohistochemical study on all the lymphoid tissue from five lymph node stations (2 hilar, 3 mediastinal) fr...Expand abstract

Does the use of immunohistochemistry to identify micrometastases provide useful information in the staging of node-negative non-small cell lung carcinomas?
