Proliferation index (Ki-67 / MIB 1)

A measure of the number of cells in a tumor that are dividing (proliferating). May be used to give a more complete understanding of how fast a tumor is growing. Example; Ki-67 also known as MIB1. The proliferative activity of tumors can be evaluated using MIB1 antibody to detect Ki-67 nuclear antigen, which is associated with cell proliferation.
