Acute lymphocytic leukemia with atypical cytochemical features

American Journal of Clinical Pathology
M T Shaw, D R Ishmael


In a series of 78 cases of acute lymphocytic leukemia, seven were found to demonstrate blast cells staining strongly for both the periodic acid-Schiff reaction and alpha-naphthyl acetate esterase. It is suggested that these features may represent a subclassification of acute lymphocytic leukemia or may be a marker for the leukemic phase of lymphoma.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
