Stem cell transplantation produces prolonged survival with improved safety in patients with AL amyloidosis

By | July 14, 2022
AL amyloidosis is a life-threatening disease related to bone marrow cancer, multiple myeloma. It is caused when a person’s antibody-producing white blood cells (i.e. plasma cells) do not function properly and generate abnormal protein which misfolds to form amyloid fibrils and deposits made of components of antibodies called light chains, which then deposit in various organs of the body.
