Abstract

Conclusions:

Aberrant CD56 expression on granulocytes is seen in all aubtypes MPN and high grade MDS. CD56 expression in MPN correlated with bone marrow morphology, BCR/ABL transcript, and bone marrow engraftment study following treatment. Identification of abnormal CD56+ granulocytes and monocytes is helpful in both the initial diagnosis and long-term follow up of patients with MPN and MDS.
