Abstract

The most recent Human Leucocyte Differentiation Antigen Workshop ("HLDA7") took place in 2000 in Harrogate, UK and the proceedings are about to be published (Leucocyte Typing VII). New Sections were introduced in this Workship (Dendritic cells, Stem/progenitor cells, Erythroid cells and Carbohydrate Structures) and monoclonal antibodies were selected for which at least some molecular data were already available (to avoid "blind" screening of reagents against known specificities). A total of more than 80 new CD specificifies were established (previously the average was less than 30 new CD specificities per Workshop) and these are listed in this article. There is already evidence for the existence of many new leucocyte surface molecules for study at the next HLDA Workshop (in Adelaide in 2004), and we have listed in this article a number of such potential CD candidates (identified following the production of monoclonal antibodies or via gene cloning). There are also today an increasing number of lineage- and/or stage-restricted leucocyte-associated molecules localised within the cell cytoplasm (or nucleus): they will certainly prove of intense in the future for many laboratories studying human haematopoietic cells (regardless of whether a new "intracellular CD" categorisation scheme is devised for such molecules).
