What's new in paraproteinemic demyelinating neuropathy in 2007-2008?

J Peripher Nerv Syst. 2008 Dec;13(4):264-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1529-8027.2008.00191.x.


Research and development in the area of paraproteinemic demyelinating peripheral neuropathy is slower than for some of the other inflammatory neuropathy syndromes. However, 2007-2008 has produced developments in the understanding of the pathogenesis of the neuropathy and the paraprotein, a potential new animal model, easier diagnostics, and two randomized controlled trials with the results of others awaited. This short review summarizes these publications.
