Test Description

Chromogranin A is a commonly-used marker of neuroendocrine cells and tumors with neuroendocrine differentiation. Most small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) cells demonstrate a cytoplasmic subcellular localization staining pattern, while most non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cells are not as immunoreactive.
