This study arose from an international collaborative study initiated some 3 years ago. The study was designed to see if careful subdivision of acute lymphatic leukaemia using a standardised panel of monoclonal antibodies would reveal interesting associations between subtypes and particular geographic regions or ethnic groups within regions which might then be further investigated. Preliminary results of this pilot study were presented at the workshop and are published in this volume. The book also includes other more classical epidemiological studies, recent observations on known aetiological factors and data from other geographic regions.
For all leukaemia research workers.
