The infiltration of leukemia cells could be observed in bone marrow and spleen sections.CONCLUSION: Systemic B lineage acute leukemia animal mode1 has been successfully established in the NOD/SCID mice, which is a useful tool for studying pathogenesis of leukemia and guiding clinical chemotherapy regimens.
