Multiple Myeloma and Related Serum Protein Disorders is a practical guide to the clinical use of serum and urine electrophoresis and also includes coverage of immunofixation electrophoresis. These techniques are essential in the accurate identification of monoclonal gammopathies and the diagnosis of multiple myeloma and related disorders. Interpretation is often challenging even for the experienced practitioner. Throughout the book the emphasis is on indications and practical aspects of interpreting test results. Particular attention is paid to differentiating false negative and false positive.
