Hi Laurie:

    I have not done CI with sialidase but I have used hyaluronaidase 
many years ago. Keep in mind that there are two kinds of hyaluronidase, 
Bovine testicular and Streptococcyl, I think the latter is more 
specific. You need a book on mucin/connective tissue histochemistry, a 
lot has been done using gut mucins as models but I forget the details. 
See a histochemistry text for the correct path to follow.

Our pathologists have a mucinous skin tumor and are trying to differentiate between a primary breast CA and a primary eyelid tumor.  It may be run in conjunction with hyaluronidase digestion.  Any references or procedures??
