Monoclonal antibodies raised against living, early invasive mouse trophoblast cells were screened on paraffin sections from first- and third-trimester placentas and from hydatidiform moles and choriocarcinoma. Several mouse-human cross-reacting antibodies were recognized, which implies that mouse trophoblast cells can be used as immunogen for producing antibodies against human trophoblast. Among the new antibodies obtained, some were selected for further study. That panel includes a trophoblast specific antibody with capacity to differ between invasive and noninvasive molar tissues, and two antibodies, which detect antigen epitopes in the normal, but not in the neoplastic trophoblast.
