 Multiple myeloma researchers at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) recently discovered that widespread activity of a specific class of genes can identify aggressive, or high-risk, cases of the disease.

Research led by John D. Shaughnessy Jr., Ph.D., director of the Donna D. and Donald M. Lambert Laboratory for Myeloma Genetics at the UAMS Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy, pointed to the high level of molecules known as microRNAs in patients with high-risk multiple myeloma.

The discovery could lead to more sensitive tools for diagnosing and treating those with high-risk multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell produced in the bone marrow

Technical, detailed content–but worth a look.
Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
