The Immunohistochemistry p40 test is a specialized diagnostic procedure used in the field of pathology to assist in the identification of specific types of cancer cells, particularly those originating from squamous cell carcinoma and differentiating them from other types of lung cancer. The p40 protein is a biomarker that is more specific than others for squamous cell carcinoma, making this test a crucial tool for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Conducted in the sophisticated laboratories of DNA Labs UAE, a facility renowned for its state-of-the-art technology and expert staff, this test ensures reliable and precise results. The cost of the Immunohistochemistry p40 test at DNA Labs UAE is 520 AED. This investment aids in the targeted treatment approach, potentially improving patient outcomes by identifying the exact nature of the tumor, thereby facilitating the selection of the most appropriate therapeutic strategy.

Test Details

The P40 test is an immunohistochemistry (IHC) test used to detect the expression of the P40 protein in tissue samples. P40 is a variant of the p63 protein, which is involved in cell cycle regulation and differentiation of epithelial cells.

The P40 test is primarily used in the diagnosis of lung cancer, particularly in distinguishing between squamous cell carcinoma and other types of lung cancer. P40 is highly expressed in squamous cell carcinoma but not in other lung cancer subtypes, making it a useful marker for identifying this specific type of cancer.

During the P40 test, tissue samples are collected and processed for IHC staining. The tissue sections are incubated with a primary antibody specific to P40, which binds to the P40 protein if present. This is followed by incubation with a secondary antibody that is conjugated to a detection system, such as a chromogen or fluorescent dye. The presence of P40 protein is then visualized under a microscope.

The results of the P40 test can help pathologists determine the type of lung cancer present in the tissue sample. Positive staining for P40 indicates the presence of squamous cell carcinoma, while negative staining suggests a different subtype of lung cancer.

Overall, the P40 test is a valuable tool in the diagnosis and classification of lung cancer, helping guide treatment decisions and prognosis for patients.
