We used a dual-color fluorescence in situ hybridization technique to estimate deleted mitochondrial DNA at a single-cell level and determine any correlation with the disease progression in lymphocytes from patients with Pearson marrow-pancreas syndrome. The method demonstrated a shift in heteroplasmy, paralleling the hematologic improvement.
