Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Leucocyte integrins are cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) involved in the regulation of lymphocyte trafficking. We performed a flow cytometric analysis of peripheral blood (PB) from 68 patients suffering from several B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders (CLDs) in leukaemic phase, in order to get more informations on the expression of CD11a, CD11b, CD11c and CD18 molecules by malignant B-cells. A defective expression of CD18/CD11a receptorial complex, compared to normal controls, was found (p
