The present case suggests that in patients with [Beta]-migrating Bence Jones proteins
and evidence of renal tubular dysfunction, a confirmatory repeat UIFE may be warranted when serial Bence Jones protein
levels measured using UPEP with densitometric scanning appear inconsistent with clinical findings (ie, do not decrease with other signs of clinical improvement) or increase unexpectedly.
As a control, we used the urine from a myeloma patient with [kappa] Bence Jones protein
without cryo formation.
Guidelines for the analysis of Bence Jones protein
Bence Jones proteins
and light chains of immunoglobulins.
Correlation of serum immunoglobulin free light chain quantitation with urine Bence Jones protein
in light chain myeloma [Technical Brief].
Urine Bence Jones proteins
was negative and serum electrophoresis pattern was normal in all subjects.
Also, urine should be sent for protein electrophoresis to look for Bence Jones proteins
In some cases myeloma cells secrete immunoglobulins that contain only the light chains, these are secreted in the urine and are known as Bence Jones proteins
