The lymphoblasts in B-ALL are almost always positive for the B-cell markers: CD19, cytoplasmic CD79a, and cytoplasmic CD22. None of these markers by itself are specific for B-lineage leukemia, but their expression on the lymphoblasts in combination strongly supports the diagnosis. CD20 is specific for B-lineage, but is often dimly expressed or negative in B-ALL. CD79a and PAX5 are the most frequently utilized antibodies to document B-cell differentiation in tissue sections; however, they are not specific.

3–35). Some translocations result in a creation of fusion genes, such as PICALM-MLLT10 t(10;11) (p13;q14) and MLL-ENL t(11;19) (q23;p13) [63]. Activating mutations in the NOTCH1 gene, important for T cell development, are detected in 50% of adult T-ALL patients and are associated with a shorter survival [64, 65]. 2 Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia – Clinical Features and Making the Diagnosis 19 In some cases translocations not detected by routine karyotyping can be identified by molecular genetic studies.
