28.3.1. International Myeloma Working Group (2009)

Chapter 28

In the guidelines for sFLC analysis in MM and related disorders, the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) recommend a combination of sFLC analysis and immunofixation of serum and urine to screen for AL amyloidosis [167]. The guidelines also recommend that baseline sFLC measurements are obtained for all AL amyloidosis patients, as highly abnormal results have prognostic value (Section 28.4).
