In lung cancer, small sample size and the conservation of tissue necessitate the use of marker panels on a single slide. Desmoglein 3 + Cytokeratin 5 + Napsin A and p40 + TTF-1 antibody cocktails present excellent tools for differentiation of primary lung adenocarcinomas from squamous cell carcinoma, as well as small cell carcinomas and ACAs from all other sites.
