  • 1. Paraproteinemia John Matthews
  • 2. Definition of a paraprotein
    • A monoclonal immunoglobulin or immunoglobulin light chain in the blood or urine resulting from a clonal proliferation of plasma cells or B-lymphocytes (synonyms: M-band, monoclonal band, monoclonal spike, monoclonal protein)
  • 3. Identification of paraproteins
    • Serum protein electrophoresis
    • Immunofixation
    • Urine protein electrophoresis

  • 9. Three major disorders associated with paraproteinemia
    • Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MGUS)
