Abstract

WE DESCRIBE A technique for estimating the number of proliferating cells in gliomas and adjacent resection cavities after tumor removal. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) is a nuclear protein associated with the cell cycle. Anti-PCNA antibody staining provides a semiquantitative estimate of the number of proliferating cells found in fixed tissue embedded in paraffin. The extent of the staining of tumor cells of glioblastoma multiforme, anaplastic astrocytomas, low-grade gliomas, and other lesions of the brain with anti-PCNA antibody is correlated with the histological diagnosis. In addition, the labeling of the margins after resection of gliomas and other lesions with anti-PCNA antibody is also associated with the histological diagnosis of the lesion. This technique may be useful in estimating the “biological” extent of resection and in predicting the recurrence patterns of gliomas.
