A comprehensive article on technical aspects and interpretation of immunocytochemistry for diagnosis and targeted therapy has been selected as Editor’s choice for August and September. Skoog and Tani give us the benefit of their unrivaled experience during the last 20 years at the Karolinska Hospital. Theirs is the lead article in a themed issue largely devoted to immunocytochemistry. Your attention is also drawn to the editorial by Vielh, the results of an EFCS survey and of the UK-NEQAS ICC (cytology module), and several other articles on applications of immunocytochemistry and a method for making LBC control specimens.
