The prognostic significance of expression of myeloid-associated antigens in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (myA+ALL) was evaluated. From 1984 to 1990, 251 children with immunologically verified ALL were treated in two prospective consecutive Austrian studies. Complete immunophenotyping was performed in 206 cases (82%). Out of these 175 cases were classified as B-cell precursor ALL, 31 cases as T-ALL. Expression of myeloid-associated antigens was demonstrated in 23 cases (13.1%) of… CONTINUE READING
