We also retrieved the information on IHC for HMWK (cytokeratin 5/6 [CK5/6]) and AMACR ordered for the evaluation of the needle biopsies, including the specific blocks in which IHC was performed.
The first one was used for IHC, using combined HMWK (CK5/6) and AMACR, which were performed sequentially on one slide, followed by 3 deeper H & E levels as previously described.
The diagnostic utility of HMWK and AMACR have been evaluated extensively in the prostate pathology practice from a diagnostic perspective, but the quality assurance and the cost aspects of the use of IHC in evaluating prostate needle biopsies, a large segment of genitourinary pathology practice, to our knowledge have not been previously addressed.
