HBME-1 (clone HBME-1) HBME-1 Anti-human mesothelial marker targeted on its microvillous surface. In addition to being used for identifying mesothelial cells, it has been increasingly used in distinguishing papillary carcinoma of the thyroid from goitrous nodules / hurthle cell neoplasms with great sensitivity (100%), specificity (>90%) and positive predictive value (0.9). It can also be used to aid in the diagnosis of follicular-derived lesions of thyroid as positivity more specific for malignancy.
