A method for classifying and monitoring leukemias is disclosed. The method comprises mixing cells from a patient with a plurality of fluorescently labelled monoclonal antibodies, examining the cells by means of flow cytometry, scoring the percent of positive cells in each quadrant in a two-dimensional plot of log fluorescence and comparing the scores with a standard. Monitoring of the disease also may be achieved by comparing the scores before, during and after treatment.
