Multiple myeloma (MM) is caused by proliferation of clonal plasma cells (cPCs) in bone marrow (BM), associated with numerical and functional defects in immune subsets. An impairment of B cell compartm...
The role of c-myc in multiple myeloma (MM) is controversial. We conducted a retrospective study of 117 patients with MM diagnosed between 2004 and 2010 at Herlev Hospital. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) a...
Multiple myeloma is still incurable in most cases. Polyclonal anti T lymphocyte globulins (ATG) have been reported to kill human myeloma cells in vitro and in mouse models.
In contrast to anaemia, polycythaemia is a distinctly uncommon finding in patients with multiple myeloma. We describe the presence of otherwise unexplained polycythaemia in a 57-year-old Caucasian man...
The bone marrow microenvironment plays a decisive role in multiple myeloma progression and drug resistance. Chemokines are soluble mediators of cell migration, proliferation and survival and essential...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and bone marrow from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about T cells and plan better treatment for multiple myeloma. ...
RATIONALE: White blood cells from donors may be able to kill cancer cells in patients with multiple myeloma that has recurred following bone marrow transplantation. PURPOSE: This phase II...
This research study is evaluating a new drug called "nivolumab" as a possible treatment for smoldering multiple myeloma in order to prevent or postpone development of active multiple myelo...
The primary objective is to cure multiple myeloma with less toxic allogeneic bone marrow transplantation while inducing renal allograft tolerance through mixed chimerism in patients with e...
The purpose of this research study is to test whether the drug ibrutinib (trademark name: IMBRUVICA®) is effective at preventing the development of multiple myeloma in people who currentl...
Neoplasms located in the bone marrow. They are differentiated from neoplasms composed of bone marrow cells, such as MULTIPLE MYELOMA. Most bone marrow neoplasms are metastatic.
A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.
Abnormal immunoglobulins characteristic of MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
An abnormal protein with unusual thermosolubility characteristics that is found in the urine of patients with MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
Multiple protein bands serving as markers of specific ANTIBODIES and detected by ELECTROPHORESIS of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID or serum. The bands are most often seen during inflammatory or immune processes and are found in most patients with MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
