DNA-based cytophotometry was used to analyze metaphase chromosomes in four patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia. In three of these patients, both Philadelphia chromosome (Ph1)-positive and Ph1-negative cells were measured. On the basis of these three patients, the characteristic 9q+/22q- translocation of chronic myelogenous leukemia involves the net transfer of 0.325% of the autosomal genome; there is no evidence of net gain or loss of DNA (apart from duplication of the Ph1 chromosome in one patient), and no significant difference is found in the amount of DNA transferred in different patients. Significant differences are found among patients in the derived Chromosomes 9 and the Ph1 chromosomes and are ascribed to preexisting variations in the Ph1-negative cells of these patients. There is no evidence in these patients of any further cytogenetic lesion associated with chronic myelogenous leukemia.
