Papillary carcinoma is by far the most frequent malignant tumor of the thyroid with a threefold prevelance in females. Studies have shown that 100% of malignant thyroid lesions were found to contain the keratan sulfate (KS) bearing molecules, while these were virtually absent from benign tissues and other thyroid tumors, with the exception of 21% of follicular carcinoma cases analyzed1. Clone 373E1 is specific for the keratan sulfate bearing molecular complex.
