Monitoring Monoclonal Gammopathies

Serum and Urine Protein Electrophoresis and Immunofixation Electrophoresis

Slide 5

November 2009

On this next slide, we have the electrophoretic results for the serum and urine from a patient with light chain multiple myeloma. The serum contains a monoclonal lambda light chain, seen in the IFE lambda lane, but it is not measurable. The urine, however, has a 2.6 g/24 hour M-spike. These 2 patients each have a measurable M-spike for monitoring response.
