Expression of NK and lymphoid-associated antigens in blast cells of acute myeloblastic leukemia.


In the present study, the expression of two NK-associated antigens (CD56 and CD16) together with six 'classically' considered lymphoid-related markers (TDT,CD19,CD10,CD7,CD2,CD4) has been analyzed by appropriate dual combinations in 265 acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patients. Among the lymphoid markers, CD4 and CD7 were those most frequently expressed by… (More)
