Reagents, Immunoassay, Tumor Marker, Protein, Monoclonal Ig, Heavy Chain
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum, but also urine) to determine heavy chain (alpha, gamma, or mu) fragments of monoclonal immunoglobulins (paraproteins). Heavy-chain related diseases are less frequent than light chain diseases. They are associated with lymphoid infiltration, causing severe malabsorption in the intestines.
