Why CD15 IHC Marker Test?


The glycan determinant CD 15 is also known as Lewis x or Le(x) or LeuM1, or 3-fucosyl –N-acetyl-lactosamine, is a distinguished marker for human myeloid cells (CD 15/BRA4F1 reacts with human CD15 antigens present ion myeloid cells, mainly granulocytes, macrophages, and stem cells – but not on B cells, T cells, monocytes, erythrocytes or platelets) and mediates neutrophil adhesion to dentritic cells. This granulocyte marker helps to study chemotaxis and phagocytosis. CD 15 is expressed in granulocytes, malignant lymphomas, Hodgkin lymphoma, and acute myeloid leukemias. Hence CD15 IHC Marker Test helps in the diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma, a membranous, diffuse cytoplasmic or Golgi staining of Reed-Sternberg cells used to confirm the diagnosis or to differentiate Hodgkin lymphoma (CD 15+) and CD 30+ from anaplastic large cell lymphoma (usually CD15+) and CD 30+.
