Emergence of oligoclonal bands in patients with multiple myeloma in complete remission after induction chemotherapy: association with the use of novel agents.

Abstract

The emergence of oligoclonal bands is associated with a favorable outcome after autologous stem cell transplantation in multiple myeloma. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of immunoglobulin oligoclonality in 33 patients with multiple myeloma in complete remission achieved with primary therapy with either cytotoxic agents (n = 18, 54.5… (More)
