3 [micro]m thick paraffin sections were in sequence incubated with 3% [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] for 10 min and 5% BSA for 30 min at room temperature and then incubated with primary antibodies which are rabbit anti-rat and polyclonal such as TLR2 (sc - 10739), TLR4 (sc - 10741), and TLR9 (sc 25468).
Out of 10 malignant glial tumours 5 cases (50%) were reported as glioblastoma, 4 cases (40%) were reported as high grade astrocytoma and in one case suspicion of anaplastic meningioma was offered which was confirmed on paraffin section. It was noted that presence of necrosis and marked endothelial proliferation were in favour of the diagnosis of glioblastoma rather than high-grade astrocytoma.
