Previous studies have suggested that elevated serum concentrations of antibodies against N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of the glutamate receptors (NR2 antibodies) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) are capable of identifying newborns with a risk of HIE after birth asphyxia.
Several investigators have demonstrated expression of neuron-specific enolase in SPN.
The tumor stains positively for (b) neuron-specific enolase, (c) vimentin, (d) synaptophysin, and (e) S-100 protein.
6) Rhabdomyosarcomas typically stain positively for desmin, myoglobin, and vimentin, while staining negatively for the epithelial markers (cytokeratin, epithelial membrane antigen) and neuron-specific enolase.

Age-related changes of neuron-specific enolase, S-100 protein, and myelin basic protein concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid.
On immunohistochemical staining, the tumor was strongly positive for SI00, neuron-specific enolase, and vimentin and was weakly positive for glial fibrillary acidic protein stain (Table 1).
It measures both neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and Pro-gastrin-releasing peptide (ProGRP), which enhances diagnostic accuracy.
To exclude the different cells origin of this tumor, other immunohistochemical staining were done: pancytokeratin (-), chromogranin A (-), SMA (-), CD117 (-) CD45 (-) Neuron-specific enolase (-) (Fig 1a.
Paragangliomas will show positivity for neuron-specific enolase, chromogranin A and synaptophysin as well as S100 protein positivity for sustentacular cells and are negative for thyroglobulin and calcitonin.
