Abstract

We investigated the possibility of identification of human skin left under various conditions using our original enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for squamous cell carcinoma-related (SCC) antigen. The antigen could be detected in specimens under the following conditions: putrefied or dried at room temperature for at least 12 months, immersed in fresh water at room temperature for 3 weeks and heated at 100°C for 72 h.
