Results of recent research have made it possible to classify amyloidosis by means of the chemical and antigenic characteristics of the amyloid fibrils. The chemical classification of amyloid correlates quite well with the various clinical types of amyloidosis. Monoclonal immunoglobulins constitute a major part of primary amyloid fibrils, while amyloid protein AA plays a similar role in secondary amyloidosis. In addition, structural properties of amyloid fibril proteins derived from medullary… CONTINUE READING
