Abstract

We found a direct correlation between increasing ras p21 protein immunopositivity and severity of human glioma using computer-assisted, digital-image processing to quantify the amount of p21 immunoreactive to the monoclonal antibody RAP-5. We determined that there was a significant difference in reactivity between glioblastoma multiformes and more-differentiated astrocytomas (experiment-wise error <0.05). This result confirmed the conclusions made on the same tumors using standard light microscopy and visual examination. Immunohistochemistry quantized by automated image analysis may be a useful adjunct to current histopathological strategies since it decreases assay subjectivity and variation.
