Abstract

We investigated the role of complement in the pathogenesis of the demyelinating polyneuropathy that occurs in some patients with IgM monoclonal gammopathy. Seven patients with chronic sensorimotor polyneuropathy and IgM monoclonal gammopathy were examined. In six patients, the monoclonal protein recognized an epitope shared by myelin-associated glycoprotein… (More)
