Tissue factor (TF) antigen and activity were measured in leukemic cell homogenates. In leukemic cell homogenate, especially that of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), both TF antigen and activity were significantly higher than these levels in the mononuclear cells obtained from healthy volunteers. Both TF antigen and activity were significantly higher in myelocytic leukemia than in lymphocytic leukemia cells. In leukemic cell homogenates, there was a close correlation between TF antigen and TF… CONTINUE READING
