About the disease

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a cancer of plasma cells. Plasma cells are a subtype of white blood cells, which produce antibodies – substances that fight against various infections, germs and harmful bacteria. In this type of cancer malignant cells accumulate and reproduce in the bone marrow. Instead of generating antibodies, plasma cells begin to produce proteins, which damage kidneys.

Almost always multiple myeloma begins as a benign condition, which can become dangerous later. It usually occurs in people older than 60 years. Black race has multiple myeloma twice as often as other races. Although the cause of multiple myeloma was not revealed, it is believe to be connected with chromosome abnormalities.

This type of cancer is considered to be rare. In the United States risk of getting it during the lifetime is approximately 0.3%. 5-year survival rate is on average 48.5%. This disease represents approximately 1.8% of all cancer cases.

Symptoms

  • Pain in spinal and chest bones
  • Constipation
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Weakness
  • Exposure to various infections
  • Constant thirst

Diagnosis

Diagnosis usually includes series of tests, which reflect state of the bone marrow.

  • Blood test reveals the excessive amount of protein, produced by plasma cells, in blood
  • Urine test reveals specific for the MM proteins in urine
  • Kidney function test determines if kidneys were damaged
  • Bone marrow biopsy can reveal myeloma cells and show if there are abnormalities in bone marrow structure

Treatment

  • Chemotherapy uses different kinds of drugs to kill myeloma cells. They can be given through a vein or taken as a tablet.   
  • Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are combined to destroy as many myeloma cells as possible. In this type of cancer it is impossible to perform surgery on bone marrow, so doctors need high doses of radiation beams and drugs to stop growth of malignant cells.
  • Bone marrow transplantation is a replacement of damaged bone marrow with the healthy one. This procedure is usually performed right after chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Before chemotherapy, which is likely to damage not only malignant but also healthy cells, doctor removes healthy stem cells, which will later be transplanted back. Then these stem cells will be able to restore normal blood formation. If it is impossible to take healthy stem cells from a patient before chemotherapy, doctor can use donor's cells for the same purpose. This type of treatment is called allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. The best fit is the person who has similar genes, which means that siblings and parents are the most suitable donors for this purpose. Nevertheless, they will need to undergo special tests to see if their stem cells are compatible with cells of patient and if their cells will be able to function properly. If patient has no relatives, he can still find the donor with similar stem cells through special bone marrow registries.

With all these types of treatment patients are also prescribed drugs that reduce pain in bones and loss of their elasticity. In order to prevent further kidney complications some patients are recommended to undergo dialysis. If bone marrow transplantation was conducted on time, chances of recovery are very high.
