The purpose of this study was to assess the possible relationship between the cytochemical enzyme profile and immunophenotypic characteristics of distinct acute myeloid leukemia (AML) subtypes in discrete stages of leukemic cells maturation. As the proportion of leukemic blast cells is critical for exact cytochemical analysis, study was restricted to the evaluation of 48 adult and pediatric patients with newly diagnosed AMLs with 80% or more blasts in analyzed samples. The cytochemical… CONTINUE READING
