Chromosome 13 deletion and hypodiploidy on conventional cytogenetics are robust prognostic factors in Korean multiple myeloma patients: web-based multicenter registry study.
Seoul, South Korea. In Ann Hematol, 27 Apr 2014
In the subsequent multivariate analysis, in which del(13q) and del(17p) in FISH were excluded due to a relatively low number of patients, Δ13 and hypodiploid status were independently associated with a poor survival outcome after adjusting for important clinical factors, including age, sex, performance, beta2-microglobulin, albumin, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH).

In Zhongguo Zhen Jiu, Dec 2013
Changes of clinical symptoms and signs, fast blood glucose (FBG), urinary albumin excretion rate (UAER), beta2-microglobulin (beta2-MG), monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), lymphocyte membrane cholesterol, propanediol (MDA), PCO, 8-hydroxydeoxy guanosine (8-OHdG), superoxide dismutase (SOD), CD3+, CD4+, CD8+, and CD4+/CD8+ were observed before and after treatment in two groups.
Predictors for the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in primary Sjögren's syndrome.
Bergen, Norway. In Presse Med, 2012
Among the established predictors for lymphoma development in SS, we recognize recurrent or permanent swelling of major salivary glands (SG), lymphadenopathy, cryoglobulinemia, splenomegaly, low complement levels of C4 and C3, lymphopenia, skin vasculitis or palpable purpura, M-component in serum or urine, peripheral neuropathy, glomerulonephritis and elevated beta2-microglobulin.
Osteo-articular manifestations of amyloidosis.
Paris, France. In Best Pract Res Clin Rheumatol, 2012
The amyloidosis responsible for osteo-articular manifestations are the AL immunoglobulin amyloidosis, the beta2-microglobulin amyloidosis in patients under haemodialysis and finally the amyloidosis of transthyretin (genetic and senile).
