Since making this change, we have noted a consistent pattern of immunoreactivity in nonepithelial cells from the axillary nodes of breast cancer patients: AE1 reactivity is consistently negative in the fibroblastic-type reticulum cells of the lymph node tissue, whereas AE3 is consistently positive (Figures 1 and 2, respectively).
In Reply.--We previously showed AE1/AE3 to be a better choice of antikeratin antibody for avoiding immunoreactivity in native nonepithelial cells in sentinel lymph nodes in our article "Undesirable Cytokeratin Immunoreactivity of Native Nonepithelial Cells in Sentinel Lymph Nodes From Patients With Breast Carcinoma." (1) In their letter to the editor regarding our article, Yeh and Miller reported their experience with AE1 and AE3 antibodies in sentinel lymph nodes from breast cancer patients.
