Abstract: The importance of in situ immunodetection of hormone receptors for therapy planning and prognostic evaluation in patients with breast carcinoma is well established. Sensitive detection methods are of utmost importance, especially in poorly fixed tissues, which are not uncommon in routine pathologic practice. The purpose of the present study is to compare immunoexpression of estrogen receptors in 20 cases of invasive ductal carcinoma using two antibodies, ID5 and 6F11, and to verify the effect of different antigen retrieval solutions and detection systems. Immunoperoxidase was performed on paraffin sections using ID5 and 6F11 as primary antibodies. Heat-induced antigen retrieval was performed using citrate buffer (pH 6.0) or Tris-EDTA buffer (pH 8.9). Detection was achieved using the following systems: Envision, Envision Plus, and labeled streptavidinbiotin peroxidase complex. Reaction was semiquantified from 0 to 4. There were no differences between the two markers, 1D5 and 6F11, except when 6F11 was used with Envision and citrate buffer, in which case weaker reactivity was observed. Only in this combination (6F11/EnVision) was EDTA buffer significantly better than citrate. Labeled streptavidin-biotin peroxidase complex presented the best results, followed by EnVision Plus.
