BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Bone lesions often occur in multiple myeloma (MM), but no tests have proven useful in identifying patients with increased risk. Bone marker assays and bone densitometry are non-invasive methods that can be used repeatedly at low cost. This study was performed to evaluate these methods in predicting bone events in MM patients. DESIGN AND METHODS Thirty newly diagnosed MM patients were enrolled. Serum C-terminal telopeptide (ICTP) and urinary N-terminal telopeptide… CONTINUE READING
