The court cases mirror the significant luck which has been accomplished very re cently within the type of hemoblastomas. therefore the variety of leukemias that are unclassifiable by way of immunological equipment have diminished right down to a small mi nority. New proof supply upward push to new questions. by way of together with the details of the discussions within the court cases, we would have liked to provide the reader a chance to get an influence of the questions and conclusions raised and drawn by way of the individuals at the foundation of latest - and regularly nonetheless unpublished - info.
