Expression of Estrogen Receptors (ER), Progesterone Receptors (PR) and HER-2/neu receptors in Endometrial Carcinoma and their associations with histological types, grades and stages of the tumor

Abstract


Objective: To study and detect immunohistochemical expression of Estrogen Receptors, Progestrone Receptors and HER-2/neu Receptors in Endometrial Carcinoma (EC) and to find their associations with histological types, grades and stages of the tumor.

Methods: A cross sectional study of one year duration from January 2016 to January 2017 was conducted at Histopathology department of Army Medical College, Rawalpindi. A non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to include 56 cases of EC. The specimens were tested for ER, PR and HER-2/neu expression using immunohistochemical analysis. Data was analyzed in SPSS and the significance of association of expression of the receptors with histological types, grades and stages of the tumor was assessed.

Results: Significant association of Her-2/neu overexpression with histological types and grades of EC was seen, whereas the association of ER and PR expression with histological types, grades and stage of EC was statistically insignificant.

Conclusion: It is suggested that EC showing over expression of HER2/neu with immunohistochemistry may be treated with anti HER-2/neu treatment with better chances of survival and decreased post-treatment morbidity.
