The Human Leucocyte Differentiation Antigens Workshops (HLDA) have since 1984 provided a forum for the characterization and study of leucocyte surface molecules and antibodies against them. HLDA devised the CD nomenclature, which is sanctioned by IUIS. The HLDA Council reviewed and modified the objectives of HLDA in 2004, and changed the name of the organization to Human Cell Differentiation Molecules (HCDM) to reflect the broader objectives. Workshop studies under the HCDM banner proceeded during 2005 and early 2006, culminating in a meeting in May 2006. At that meeting the Council, acting as Nomenclature Committee, approved a number of new CD designations and changes to some pre-existing CD designations, which are summarized in this report.
