"OMICS Group International is a scientific organization that promotes open access for relevant scientific information and research findings. About 700+ peer-reviewed journals are handled by more than 25000 editorial board members who belong to both academic and industrial circles in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. A collaboration set up recently with 100 international societies would provide a window to wider knowledge-base of worldwide open access health-related information. As part of its drive to boost knowledge-sharing through real-time interaction, this open access group has been organizing over 100 world-class scientific conferences at global venues through the calendar year. Abstracts presented at the meets are invited from scholars with a track record of effective research papers that are also published as special journal issue for each of the conference.
The word Immunohistochemistry derived from the words "immuno," refering to antibodies employed in the procedure, and "histo," which means tissue. It can be defined as the process of antigen or protein detection in the biological sample using antigen specific antibodies. Immunohistochemical staining is widely used in the diagnosis of abnormal cells such as those found in cancerous tumors. The antigen antibody interaction can be visualised by number of ways, the foremost common one being the use of a secondary antibody that conjugates with an enzyme to produce a coloured reaction, such as peroxidise.
There are two types of immunohistochemical staining: direct and indirect method. Immunohistochemistry can be used as a diagnostic tool to assess which tumors are likely to respond to therapy, by detecting the presence or elevated levels of the molecular target.
