Chapter 25
Section Contents

sFLC analysis is recommended as part of the standard investigative work-up in all newly diagnosed patients with plasma cell dyscrasias [136]. It was noted that sFLC testing is particularly important in patients with NSMM and LCMM, as well as in other patients with oligosecretory myeloma. Measurement of urine FLC levels is not recommended.
