Alterations of cellular oncogene expression have been reported in numerous neoplasias, particularly of the hematopoietic system. However, a cause-effect relationship between cellular oncogene abnormalities and oncogenesis is still unclear. In order to explore the involvement of cellular oncogenes in human cancer cells, we studied the levels of the expression of three cellular protooncogenes in the primary leukemic cells from 53 leukemic patients with different types and stages.
