Next-Generation Immunohistochemistry: A Window onto the Molecular Alterations in Tumors
Description: At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
• Identify the principal classes of molecular alterations that occur inhuman malignancies
• Explain several different types of changes, on the protein level, which can result from gene mutations occurring in tumors
• Describe examples of tumors manifesting unique chromosomal translocations and recognize how in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry (IHC) techniques can be employed in their detection
• Summarize examples of tumors that are characterized by deletions and/or mutations of selected genes, resulting in loss of protein expression, and help in the identification these tumors by IHC
