  • IMMUNOCYTOCHEMICAL DEMONSTRATION OF S-PHASE CELLS BY ANTI-BROMODEOXYURIDINE MONOCLONAL-ANTIBODY IN HUMAN-BRAIN TUMOR-TISSUES ACTA NEUROPATHOLOGICA Nagashima, T., DeArmond, S. J., Murovic, J., Hoshino, T. 1985; 67 (1-2): 155-159

    Abstract:

    Five patients with various brain tumors received bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), 150-200 mg/m2 i.v., at the time of craniotomy. Biopsied materials were fixed in 70% ethanol, sectioned, denatured with hydrochloric acid, and reacted with monoclonal antibodies against BrdU. Immunofluorescence and immunocytochemical methods were used to visualize BrdU-labeled nuclei. Our results showed that both methods demonstrated BrdU-labeled nuclei satisfactorily in tissue sections. Thus, BrdU can be used to measure the proliferative potential of human tumors in situ.
