In a recent article written by 4 pathologists, including Dr. Elizabeth 
Hammond 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

"Recommendations for Validating Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor 
immunohistochemistry Assays".
