Immunohistochemical Expression of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor in Human Gliomas
In the search for more specific tumor antigens, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mediated mechanisms have been found to play an important role for growth of malignancies. EGFR is a transmembrane mitogenic glycoprotein of 170 K. Besides the increased expression in human cervical, ovarian and vulval carcinomas , and human sarcomas  EGFR was found to be increased in human brain tumors .
