Following evidence in animal model that aciduria increases the nephrotoxicity of Bence Jones protein independently of urinary flow rate [88,89], alkalinization of the urine through oral bicarbonate has been recommended in patients with multiple myeloma and Bence Jones proteinuria to prevent or treat myeloma cast nephropathy.
We should avoid redundant laboratory tests, like Bence Jones proteinuria, since this test cannot be considered as a surrogate biomarker of kidney function.
The present case illustrates that on serial UPEP studies elevated B2M levels, in particular, can potentially be confused with persistent Bence Jones proteinuria because of this protein's association with renal dysfunction and electrophoretic migration pattern.
We examined 202 consecutive urine immunofixation gels that showed monoclonal reactivity with any of the 5 antisera in the Sebia Bence Jones Proteinuria assay.
The algorithms for MCs also identified five of nine samples from patients with Bence Jones proteinuria.

Urinary investigations for patients with multiple myeloma (MM)3 include electrophoretic protein screening (evaluation of renal function, detection of an abnormal protein fraction) followed by immunofixation (IFE) for identification of a monoclonal component [intact immunoglobulin or monoclonal free light chains: Bence Jones proteinuria (BJP)] (1).
