Reactivity of bone marrow (BM) cells (white bars) and clones (black bars) with VIM DS (CD1S) of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients in complete remission (n = 19) as compared with three patients with regenerating normal hematopoiesis Therefore, it can be concluded that the majority of bone marrow cells in AML expressing VIM D5 (CD15) originated from the leukemic clone. The observation that CD15 was increasingly expressed during culture with CSF demonstrated that AML progenitors can give rise to relatively differentiated myeloid cells.

We investigated whether normal colonies and leukemic clones are distinguishable by surface markers. Characteristic differences might help to detect even low numbers of residual leukemic clones in remission. For this purpose a Detection of Minimal Disease in Hematological Malignancies 43 method which allowed the analysis of differentiation markers on hundreds of clones in situ was developed by Schmetzer and Gerhartz (1987).
