A comparative study of antigen unmasking by wet autoclaving and microwave heating so as to immunostain p53 was applied to a series of 63 ovarian and endometrial carcinomas. Wet autoclaving proved to be a rather useful method for restoring p53 antigens. One of its main advantages is the standardization of time and temperature conditions. © 1995 Lippincott–Raven Publishers. Philadelphia.
