Immune mechanisms of AL amyloidosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Light chain amyloidosis (AL) is both a disorder of protein conformation a dyscrasia, with secretion of altered chains that polymerize systemitally into amyloid fibrils to organ failure. Knowledge of features of amyloid of the mechanisms determining chain organ targeting cytotoxicity is improving rapidly. Manipulation of the immune response via or active immynotherapy could open new perspectives for the therapy of complex disorder.
