Abstract

We used a new method of data presentation and analysis, termed antigen mapping, to characterize recurring myeloblast phenotypic abnormalities in a series of 28 cases of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), including refractory anemia with ringed sideroblasts (RARS), refractory anemia with multilineage dysplasia (RCMLD), and refractory anemia with excess blasts (RAEB). Abnormal patterns of CD34 and CD117 expression were present in 50% of RARS, 68% of RCMLD, and 100% of RAEB cases. The presence of decreased myeloblast CD45 density, increased CD13 and CD34 density, and increased expression of CD11c and CD4 dim were MDS grade-related. There was a direct relationship between the number of myeloblast phenotypic abnormalities (phenotypic score) and MDS grade. The myeloblast phenotypic scores also were correlated highly with International Prognostic Scoring System scores and risk categories. We found the antigen mapping technique to be an efficient data presentation and analysis method for the detection of MDS-associated abnormalities of antigen distribution and density.
