abstract

  • Ber-EP4 is at least as useful as CEA, B72.3 and Leu-M1 in the diagnosis of serous effusions. It has the advantage of high sensitivity and ease of interpretation because of the high percentage of tumor cells stained, characteristic membranous staining and lack of cross-reaction with background inflammatory cells.
