Cancer specific Mucin-1 glycoforms are expressed on multiple myeloma.

Present therapies cannot cure the large majority of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and therefore new treatment strategies are imperative. This study analysed the different glycosylation profiles of Mucin-1 (MUC1) on MM and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cells using a series of anti-MUC1 antibodies. Seventy-three per cent of the MM patients had plasma… CONTINUE READING
