In a recent article written by 4 pathologists, including Dr. Elizabeth Hammon and Dr. Patrick Fitzgibbons, the recommendations are now including testing with a lab that has validated it's assay against clinical outcomes.  How is everyone planning on fulfilling this requirement inasmuch as we are not aware of any lab in our metro area with this kind of compliance.

Thanks, as always, for any guidance in this area!  If you would like a reprint of this article, email is pfitz <@t> stjoe.org and the article is entitle "Recommendations for Validating Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor immunohistochemistry Assays".
