A clone of murine monoclonal antibody HH 10 (IgM) was raised by fusing NS-1 myeloma cells and spleen cells of a mouse hyperimmunized with acute promyelocytic leukemia cells. Serological analysis by means of immune adherence assays showed that HH 10 reacts with immature hematopoietic cells including thymocytes and myeloid precursor cells (defined as colony-forming units in culture assays). The antibodies were not reactive to either peripheral blood cells or bone marrow cells obtained from normal individuals. Lymphoid blasts induced with phytohemagglutinin, pokeweed mitogen, or concanavalin A were also non-reactive, and all non-hematopoietic cultured cells examined were also negative. The antibodies were, however, reactive to leukemia cells in 67 cases out of 91 cases (74%) of acute leukemia.
