Localization of hepatitis C virus antigen(s) by immunohistochemistry on fixed-embedded liver tissue
Using two sources of primary antibodies, we immunohisto-chemically stained hepatitis C virus-related antigen(s) on fixed-embedded liver specimens. These antigens were localized in the cytoplasm of hepato-cytes. The results obtained serologically correlated well with immunohisto-chemistry.
