For us in histology, normal tissue identification is typically an easy process. As histologists, we were once required to identify all normal tissues by H&E under the microscope.
For abnormal tissue however, an H&E stained slide can be very difficult to identify tissue type and diagnosis. That’s why when a pathologist orders multiple stains on one tissue, they are trying to get a larger picture to understand its etiology.
To help in understanding, here are 3 stains on the same tissue, H&E, SMA, & CD8 at 4x & 10x. This is human tissue. Can you identify this tissue and its diagnosis?
NPR covers the story of the new required policy starting 2017 for all new students attending the University of California. This gives a microscope picture of measles stained with H&E. This is a truly rare event where histopathology is highlighted using a micrograph.
This is a great article to draw attention to histology and how diseases like this are diagnosed.
Hello everyone, we are proud to announce that we have been working with Woodland Pharmaceuticals in their project to identify a liver to lung metastasis model (MHCC97H) and are evaluating the lung cancer SQ A549 for lung lesions as well. At this point Woodland Pharmaceuticals is establishing a stable luciferase to express tumor cell lines with their partner SBH Sciences so metastasis can be quantified. They have positive control compounds that will mechanistically block most/all of this metastasis. We have done all their histology so far and have much more to do. Follow us with this exciting project.
