The ability of erythroid cultures to distinguish among myeloproliferative disorders was examined. We studied 14 patients with polycythemia vera (PV), 11 with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), four with non-PV erythrocytosis, two with agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, as well as three normal fetuses and greater than 25 normal adults. Endogenous, i.e. grew… CONTINUE READING
