Despite the favorable results obtained in childhood ALL, progress in the treatment of children with AML with currently used regimens, which mainly depend on the eradication of blast cells
by cytotoxic agents, remains unsatisfactory [13,14].

The percentage of blast cells
and abnormal cells should be determined after staining with on May-Grunwald-Giemsa or a Wright-Giemsa.
INVESTIGATIONS: Complete blood count, bleeding, clotting and prothrombin time were also done particularly for hemorrhagic disorders, Peripheral smear stained with Leishman's stain and any premature blast cells
, shape and color of R.
Immunological detection of blast cell
sub-populations in acute myeloblastic leukemia at diagnosis: implications for minimal residual disease studies.
The mean percentage of blast cells
in the GO/G1 phase in different heparin concentrations at 0 (without heparin), 1, and 2 h are shown in Table 2.
Figure-1: Diffuse infiltration of the marrow with myeloid blast cells
CONCLUSION: Transient abnormal myelopoiesis (TAM) is a condition with clonal proliferation of myeloid blast cells
in newborns with Down's syndrome.
In AML patients, there were significant positive correlations between plasma Ang-2 level and total leukocytic counts (TLC), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels and percentage of blast cells
in the BM (r=0 48, 0.
No blast cells
were identified in the peripheral smear.
Each Blast Freezer Controller will control up eight blast cells
Acute leukemia should be classified on the basis of FAB group, but using a cut-off point of 20% blast cells
, as proposed in the WHO classification (1).
The facility has 12 blast cells
that run at -55 [degrees] F with super high volume airflow.
The most modern refrigeration alarm devices and abundant insulation were special features; as well as six blast cells
capable of delivering -40 degree temperatures for blast freezing.
Data demonstrate elesclomol activity against AML patient primary blast cells
and cell lines
