  1. Occurrence of monoclonal components in general practice : clinical implications.

    Article - En anglais

    We report on the occurrence of monoclonal components observed in a provincial hospital in northern Italy from 1987 to 1990.

    The monoclonal components were detected by visual inspection of high-resolution acetate serum electrophoreses and typed by immunofixation.

    The percentage of monoclonal components increases steeply with age, and reaches a plateau of 7-8% in individuals over 55 years old.

    Besides the high percentage of monoclonal component, the other relevant finding of this study is that ~80% of monoclonal components are of low concentration (<5 g/l).
