Phenotypic Changes During Blast Crisis of CML Characterized by Occurrence and Loss of TDT
Phenotypic changes in a case of blast crisis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML-BC) were characterized by serial terminal transferase determinations simultaneously related to morphological, cytochemical, and cytogenetic data.
