  • NOTE: The table provides the total number of CK+CD24, CK+CD24+, and CK+ cells, analyzed from two cytospun slides from bone marrow of each patient. For each patient the percentage of CK+ cells with CK+CD24 phenotype is presented along with the mean percentage per patient and the overall percentage of all CK+ cells with CK+CD24 phenotype.
