In a review of developing prognostic indicators, Leslie and Colby (6) found promising but contradictory results in the use of p53 as an indicator of adverse outcome in NSCLC. They also cite the potential use of endothelial markers CD31 and CD 34 in the quantitative assessment of angiogenesis, which may be predictive of metastatic potential in NSCLC. Mucin stains, such as periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) with diastase for neutral mucin and mucicarmine or Alcian blue with hyaluronidase for acid mucin, may be helpful in identifying poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
