Expression of uPAR (CD87) may play a relevant role in the diagnosis and pathophysiology and prognostic pattern of acute myeloid leukemia. The aims of this study were to find out the prognostic significance of pretreatment detection of CD87 and study the prevalence of CD87 expression and its value as a predictor for survival in AML patients. CD87 expression has been studied on blasts in 110 newly diagnosed AML patients. Immunophenotyping and cytogenetic analysis of these cases were performed… CONTINUE READING
