This technique is being used to detect residual bcr-abl expressing chronic
myelogeous leukemia cells.  Do a lit search on bcr-abl or CML and pcr and
you'll find the refs.  Here are some places to start if you don't have the
ability to do the lit searches:

Lion, T et al, Leukemia, 9:1353-1360, 1995
Van Rhee, F et al, British Journal of Haematology 90:225-228 1995
Devaraj, P. E et al, British Journal of Haematology 89:349-355, 1995
Cross, Ncp et al, Leukemia, 8:186-189, 1994
Pichert, G et al, Leuk Lymphoma, 10:1-8, 1993

Hope that helps
