What Happened to Lineage-and Leukemia-Specific Antigens? Implications for Therapeutic Use of Monoclonal Antibodies
The development of hybridoma and monoclonal antibody technology by Köhler and Milstein in 1975  was certainly a major scientific event, without which the current workshop would not be held. Great expectations were clearly aroused in the immunologic and hematologic communities as a result of this technology. Specifically, the high expectations were related to the use of these antibodies in several areas, three of which we will discuss. In this report we hope to briefly review progress in the areas of (a) lineage-specific differentiation antigens, (b) leukemia-specific antigens, and (c) therapeutic use of monoclonal antibodies. Since the organizers of this meeting have requested that this be in the form of an editorial, we will attempt to conform.
