Reagents, Immunocytochemistry, Tumor Marker, Receptor Assay, Progesterone
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on tissue preparations to determine a cellular regulatory protein that binds progesterone hormones (i.e., cytoplasmic progesterone receptors). These receptors are especially found in progesterone sensitive tissues (e.g., breast, uterus, and pituitary gland tissues). The assays are performed in surgically removed samples. Determination of the level of progesterone receptors is used to judge the prognosis of endocrine therapy in diseases such as breast carcinoma. Progesterone receptor assays are mostly used to confirm the results obtained from assays with estrogen receptors.
