IHC of CD15 on an FFPE Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use|
|Summary and Explanation||
CD15 is a phosphatidylinositol-anchored transmembrane protein found on neutrophils and which may be involved in phagocytosis. It is expressed in patients with Hodgkin’s Disease, some B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemias, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemias, and most Acute Non-Lymphocytic Leukemias. It is also called Lewis x. A positive reaction for CD15 combined with a negative reaction for CD45 and other B and T-lineage markers provides support for Reed-Sternberg cells found in Hodgkin’s disease. Also, this antibody does not detect Mesotheliomas, making it a more frequently used antibody to distinguish Epithelial Mesothelioma from Adenocarcinoma.
