Abstract

Systemic amyloidoses are a wide group of diseases with different courses, treatments and prognoses. Unequivocal typing of amyloid deposits is important for correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. At present, the most effective therapeutic approach is based on eliminating the supply of amyloidogenic precursor. New effective therapies will stem from our improved knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of amyloidosis.
