Paraproteinemia: What Is Important for Nephrologists?

November 19, 2016 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: W375A

Session Description

Paraprotein-related diseases often involve kidneys and result in diverse clinical presentations and histologic features. The introduction of the serum free light chain assay can accurately quantify light chain isotypes, but the interpretation of the assay can be challenging in patients with renal diseases. In this session, we learn about the use and interpretation of free light chain assays, recognize different patterns of paraprotein-associated renal disease, and discuss novel treatments for plasma cell dyscrasia and non- amyloidosis (AL) forms of amyloid.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. evaluate blood and urine tests in the identification of paraproteins; 2. recognize the breadth of glomerular disorders associated with paraproteinemias; 3. discuss novel treatment strategies for plasma cell dyscrasia; and 4. identify and treat non-AL forms of amyloid.
