TTF-1 [SPT24] 1,0 ml
Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) is a 38 kDa member of the NKX2 family of homeodomain transcription factors. TTF-1 is mostly detected in primary lung adenocarcinomas and small cell carcinomas (1). TTF-1 can be very useful in lung cancers when used in a panel with Desmoglein 3, p40 and Napsin A antibodies (2-3).
Commercially available thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) monoclonal antibodies 8G7G3/1 and SPT24 have been shown to have different sensitivities in lung adenocarcinomas (LADC) and lung squamous cell carcinomas (SqCC) (4-6). A study by Masai, et al. demonstrated that SPT24 was much more sensitive than 8G7G3/1 in LADC (72.4% and 65.4% respectively). However, the study demonstrated that SPT24 stained a higher percentage of lung SqCC (16.8% vs. 1%). Higher sensitivity of SPT24 in lung SqCC has also been shown to be heavily influenced by different detection systems (4-5).
Higher sensitivity for LADC versus lung SqCC can be achieved with SPT24, compared to 8G7G3/1, while retaining specificity, by the use of a cut-off value and optimal antibody titer. In an in-house study, SPT24 was titered to achieve negative staining in normal liver (no cytoplasmic staining observed). A cut-off value of =10% of tumor cells positive for TTF-1 with a staining intensity of = 1+ was used to identify TTF-1 positive cases. Using this approach, SPT24 was highly sensitive for LADC (53/60, 88%), compared to 8G7G3/1 (38/60, 63%), with equivalent specificity for both clones versus lung SqCC (2/137, 1.5%).
Use of lung SqCC specific markers, such as Desmoglein 3 and p40, may identify TTF-1 positive cases of squamous cell origin. Additionally, the use of Napsin A may confirm lung adenocarcinoma as the co-expression of Napsin A and TTF-1 in lung cancers has been shown to be more pulmonary specific than either one used alone (7). Finally, unlike clone 8G7G3/1, no cytoplasmic staining in lung cancers has been observed with clone SPT24 (8).
