IFITM1 Is Superior to CD10 as a Marker of Endometrial Stroma in the Evaluation of Myometrial Invasion by Endometrioid Adenocarcinoma.
CONCLUSIONS: Compared with CD10, IFITM1 has superior performance distinguishing endometrial stroma of adenomyosis from mesenchyma surrounding invasive endometrial adenocarcinoma. IFITM1 expression is highly predictive of the absence of invasion and may be valuable in cases in which determining myoinvasion has staging implications.

Prevalence of High-Risk Human Papillomavirus Infection in China: Analysis of 671,163 Human Papillomavirus Test Results From China's Largest College of American Pathologists-Certified Laboratory.
CONCLUSIONS: Use of HPV testing in cervical screening is increasing in China. HC2 HPV-positive rates around 20% in all age groups from more than 500,000 tested Chinese women are consistent with previous reports from China and significantly higher than published HC2 HPV-positive rates in populations with more widespread cervical screening. MPFT HPV-positive rates were slightly lower in every age group. The high HPV-positive rate likely reflects limited routine cervical screening and high cervical cancer incidence in China.

Optimal Scoring of Brightfield Dual-Color In Situ Hybridization for Evaluation of HER2 Amplification in Breast Carcinoma: How Many Cells Are Enough?
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support recommendations to score 20 nuclei in conjunction with careful assessment of immunohistochemistry and scan of the BDISH slide to identify areas of heterogeneity. Scoring of additional cells/fields is likely not of benefit and might be a disadvantage since the scorer moves out of the area of strongest signal.

Diagnostic Evaluation of ELISA and Chemiluminescent Assays as Alternative Screening Tests to Indirect Immunofluorescence for the Detection of Antibodies to Cellular Antigens.
CONCLUSIONS: Some ELISA kits have comparable or superior diagnostic sensitivity to ANA HEp-2 and could be used as an alternative method for ANA screening, therefore allowing the immediate report of the results with fewer false negatives than ANA HEp-2. Owing to the lower specificity, ELISA-positive samples should be submitted to ANA HEp-2 for confirmation of results.

Neuroendocrine Differentiation in Thymic Carcinomas: A Diagnostic Pitfall: An Immunohistochemical Analysis of 27 Cases.
CONCLUSIONS: Neuroendocrine differentiation in conventional thymic carcinomas is a common occurrence. It is imperative to separate these tumors from true neuroendocrine neoplasms of the thymus-especially large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma-since both entities require different treatment modalities and likely show different biologic behavior. Contrary to prior suggestions, neuroendocrine differentiation should not be used to distinguish thymic carcinomas from thymomas, and these tumors should not be regarded as "mixed carcinomas."

Teaching High School Students About Pathology: Development of a Secondary School-Focused Enrichment Course in Pathology and Physiology.
CONCLUSIONS: We present a pathology course geared toward high school students that taught the foundations of human disease that allowed students to fully understand and engage in the material. Students felt that the knowledge earned was valuable and helped them to understand human health as well as inform their future career choices. This course could serve as a model for public outreach programs and for secondary and postsecondary educators.
