Table 2 Diagnostic result of MM patients by using flow cytometry and traditional methods

From: Detection of intracellular IgD using flow cytometry could be a novel and supplementary method to diagnose IgD multiple myeloma

Subtype Flow cytometry (n) Traditional methodsa (n) P
IgD 5 5 > 0.05
IgG 8 9 > 0.05
IgM 1 1 > 0.05
IgA 10 10 > 0.05

  1. MM multiple myeloma, IgD immunoglobulin D, IgG immunoglobulin G, IgM immunoglobulin M, IgA immunoglobulin A
  2. aThe monoclonal immunoglobulin was detected by serum protein electrophoresis, urine protein electrophoresis; serum and urine immunofixation electrophoresis (IFE); serum and urine free light chain (FLC) assay. In this article, we named these methods as traditional methods
