LORENTE GARIN, J.A. et al. Development of Tissue Microarray Technology (TMA) for immunohistochemical study of molecular expression profiling in prostate cancer (Part 1). Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.1, pp.25-32. ISSN 0210-4806.

Tissue microarray technology (TMA) is nowadays considered as a powerful tool for the high-throughput analysis of molecular expression pattern of cancer. In this manuscript we show the experience of both groups in the design and building of a TMA for the study of protein expression pattern of prostate cancer as well as a summary of the technical points to analyze the results obtained with this technology. Today, different data generated by the immunostained tissues are studied to achieve a molecular profile in different clinical scenarios.

Keywords : Tissue microarray; Prostate cancer; Immunohistochemistry.
