IHC - CD 25

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a well-established laboratory procedure used to visualize the presence of specific proteins in cells of a tissue section. The IHC - CD 25 test is designed to identify the presence of the CD25 protein, also known as the interleukin-2 receptor alpha chain (IL-2Rα), in a given tissue sample. This protein is expressed on the surface of certain immune cells, including some T cells, B cells, and monocytes, and is often overexpressed in various types of lymphomas and leukemias. Consequently, this test can be a valuable tool in the diagnosis and monitoring of these conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

The test is performed on a tissue sample, typically obtained through a biopsy. The sample is processed in a lab, where it's stained with a dye that binds to the CD25 protein, if present.

Any risks associated with this test are primarily related to the biopsy procedure used to obtain the tissue sample. These risks might include pain, infection, or bleeding at the biopsy site.

A positive result indicates that the CD25 protein is present in the tissue sample, which might suggest a certain type of lymphoma or leukemia.

A negative result means the CD25 protein was not detected in the tissue sample. This can help rule out certain types of lymphomas and leukemias.

The turnaround time for the test is usually 7 to 10 days, although this can vary depending on the laboratory.

If you get a positive result, your healthcare provider will discuss next steps with you, which might include further testing or treatment options.

Yes, there are no dietary restrictions before this test.

The IHC - CD 25 test is primarily used in the context of certain lymphomas and leukemias. However, CD25 is also expressed in various immune response scenarios and its role in other diseases is an active area of research.

Insurance coverage for this test can vary, so you'll need to check with your insurance provider to determine if this test is covered.

No specific preparation is needed for this test.

No, this test requires a tissue sample that must be collected and processed in a laboratory setting.
