Abstract

Infiltration of leukocytes into tissue is a common feature of many physiological and pathological conditions. Histopathologically, the diversity of leukocytes that infiltrate a tissue associated with a pathophysiologic response cannot be appreciated and/or examined unless highly selective immunologic detection methods are utilized. Specific populations of infiltrating leukocytes into squamous tissues harboring pre-malignant and/or malignant keratinocytes have recently been demonstrated to play a functionally significant role in the pathogenesis of squamous carcinomas. To evaluate immune cell types and quantify changes in their relative presence and localization during multi-stage neoplastic progression, we performed flow cytometry and histochemical detection using lineage-selective markers. Herein, we provide detailed methodology facilitating these analyses.
