TEX19 is associated with early adenoma stage of colorectal cancer: a IHC showing an example of a colorectal cancer tissue progression array stained with anti-TEX19 antibody. BNC = non-neoplastic colonic mucosa from pre-cancer case; BC = non-neoplastic colonic mucosa from cancer case; BI = inflamed non-neoplastic mucosa; AS = colonic adenoma, < 2 cm in diameter; AL = colonic adenoma, > 2 cm in diameter; CE = invasive adenocarcinoma, stage T1/T2; CL = invasive adenocarcinoma, stage T3/T4; LN = colorectal adenocarcinoma metastatic to lymph node; M = colorectal adenocarcinoma metastatic to distant sites. 10 X magnification used for all images shown. b Analysis of seven independent colorectal cancer tissue progression arrays stained with anti-TEX19 antibody. 0 = no staining; 1 = very weak/background staining; 2 = weak staining; 3 = strong staining; 4 = very strong staining
