Abstract Frequency of infection and antibody response to antigen administration were investigated in patients with multiple myeloma and macroglobulinemia. The patients were divided as follows on the basis of the specific proteins present: (1) γ 1 -macroglobulins; (2) 6.6 S γ-myeloma proteins; (3) β 2A -myeloma proteins; or (4) Bence Jones proteins. Infections were more frequent in patients with macroglobulinemia or multiple myeloma than in the total Clinical Center population. Infections in the… Expand
