The objective of this study was to compare the expression of primitive cell-surface antigens on CD34+ cells from early in gestation to those from term gestations. Fetal blood samples were obtained from 10 early gestation (21.0+/-0.8 [SE] weeks) and 12 term gestation (39.3+/-0.4 weeks) fetuses. The mononuclear cell population was separated by red cell lysis.(More)
