Further immunological characterization of pathological cells in the clinical laboratory should be performed whenever a specific feature of these cells has been shown to be of clinical importance for the diagnosis (immunological features that are specific of a certain cell lineage and maturation stage), prognosis (subclassification of leukemias affecting the same hemopoietic cell lineage according to differentiation features or phenotypic characteristics associated with certain genetic abnormalities), or monitoring of the disease (investigation of phenotypic aberrations and abnormal differentiation pathways).
To quantify hemopoietic cell proliferation, tunicate tissue cultures were established by excising small portions (2 x 2 mm) of the pharynx for explant culture in tunicate tissue culture medium (T-RPMI; Raftos and Cooper, 1990).
