Will the "new biology" affect the future of histopathology?

A. Carbone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The technologies used in histopathology are changing as a consequence of the current revolutionary progress in several areas of biology. It is likely that general cancer management will improve because of the impact of molecular techniques and immunohistochemistry on tumor diagnosis and classification and on the determination of prognosis and response to therapy. Moreover, as therapies are starting to be modelled after the distinctive molecular characteristics of a specific tumor, the availability of molecular tests to all patients will become a matter of great importance.
