Breast IHC Panel-ER, PR, HER2/neu (c-erb-B2), Ki-67

50+ booked in last 3 days

Overview

 

IHC Breast Panels (ER, PR, C-erb-B2, Ki-67) analyze protein levels in breast cancer tissue samples. These proteins, estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), HER2/neu (C-erb-B2), and Ki-67, influence tumor growth and response to treatment.

Knowing their presence and levels helps doctors tailor treatment plans. For example, ER-positive tumors might benefit from hormone therapy, while HER2-positive tumors might respond well to targeted therapies. Additionally, Ki-67, a marker of cell proliferation, provides information on tumor aggressiveness. Overall, IHC Breast Panels play a crucial role in guiding personalized and effective treatment strategies for breast cancer patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

This panel measures the expression levels of specific protein markers, including ER, PR, c-erb-B2 (HER2/neu), and Ki 67 in breast tissue samples. The panel guides treatment options and assess tumor characteristics.

This test is performed for several reasons, including:

  • To diagnose breast cancer and determine its subtype
  • To assess the hormone receptor status of the tumor
  • To evaluate HER2/neu protein expression
  • To determine the proliferative index of breast cells
  • To guide treatment decisions and monitor response to therapy

This test is recommended for individuals who:

  • Have been diagnosed with breast abnormalities or suspected breast cancer
  • Require further evaluation of their hormone receptor status or HER2/neu expression
  • Need prognostic information about their breast condition
  • Are undergoing treatment for breast cancer and require monitoring of treatment response

Abnormal results of this test may indicate various conditions, including:

  • Positive hormone receptor expression, suggesting a subtype of breast cancer that may respond to hormone therapy
  • Overexpression of HER2/neu, indicating a higher-risk breast cancer that may require targeted therapy
  • High Ki 67 proliferation index, indicating an aggressive tumor with a higher likelihood of recurrence

Discuss your test results with your doctor for further evaluation and appropriate management.

  • A small sample of breast tissue is collected through a biopsy or surgery in a hospital or clinical setup.
  • The tissue sample is processed and stained.
  • The stained tissue is examined under a microscope to assess the expression levels of ER, PR, c-erb-B2, and Ki 67.
  • Provide the original histopathology report and relevant clinical and radiological details.
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by your doctor and the laboratory.
  • Molecular testing for genetic mutations in breast cancer genes (e.g., BRCA1/BRCA2)
  • Imaging tests such as mammography, ultrasound, or MRI for further evaluation of breast abnormalities
  • Additional pathology tests, such as hormone receptor testing or HER2/neu gene amplification testing

Immunohistochemistry Panel for Breast Tissue Evaluation

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops from cells in the breast. It is the most common cancer affecting women worldwide, though it can also occur in men.
