Objectives: To assess immunohistochemical (IHC) stains differentially expressed between different types of lung cancer. Methods: We evaluated 16 different IHC stains in 209 prospectively included, surgically treated primary lung cancers, including 121 adenocarcinomas, 65 squamous cell carcinomas, 15 large-cell carcinomas, 5 adenosquamous carcinomas, 2 sarcomatoid carcinomas, and 1 small-cell carcinoma, using the tissue microarray technique. Results: Cytokeratin 5 (CK5) and P63 were both positive in 10% or more of the cells in 97% of the squamous cell carcinomas, with the former being positive (<10% of the cells) in only 2 non-squamous cell carcinomas. Thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF1) and napsin A were positive in 10% or more of the cells in 88% and 87% of the adenocarcinomas, respectively, with 94% of the adenocarcinomas being positive in at least 1 marker. Fifteen percent of the adenocarcinomas were positive for estrogen receptor. Conclusions: CK5, TTF1, and napsin A are sensitive markers for squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the lung.
