Immunophenotypic characteristics of blast crisis of chronic myeloid leukaemia: correlations with clinico-biological features and survival.


Blast cells from 40 patients with Philadelphia-positive chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in blast crisis were analysed by immunophenotypic methods. In 27 cases, BCR gene studies were also performed. By light microscopy morphology and cytochemistry the cases were classified as follows: undifferentiated (n = 7; 17.5%), myeloid (n = 27; 67.5%), and lymphoid (n… (More)
