Oscar? when I was the supervisor of the immuno lab at the AFIP, our rabbit 
that produced our anti-keratin died.  The civilian researcher and I were 
working up multiple cytokeratin cocktails to replace Fluffy. We wanted to 
call it the BOZO antibody, but our medical director refused. I can see it 
now, in print " 50 cases were stained with the Bozo antibody", now there's 
Oscar. Tell me this antibody didn't come from Hollywood.

Hi All. I understand that there was a recent question regarding the antibody
Oscar (pan cytokeratin). I've been off histonet while I was on vacation. We
routinely work up Oscar using normal liver. There should be staining of the
bile ducts and the hepatocytes. I'd be happy to offer more info if the
person who originally posted will contact me. I'll try not to take vacation
again ( at least until the next available time!). Happy Monday.
