The appearance elsewhere in this issue of three papers on chromosome studies in chronic granulocytic leukemia (CGL) has suggested that some sort of stock-taking is in order concerning the present meaningfulness to physicians of this and related kinds of investigation and of some of the possibilities for the future.
