Monoclonal gammopathy and neuropathy: myelin-associated glycoprotein reactivity and clinical characteristics.

Abstract

Immunoblot analysis was performed on the serum from 29 patients with polyneuropathy and monoclonal gammopathy. Nine patients had IgM spikes, and six of the nine had reactivity against myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) associated with a slowly progressive, predominantly sensory neuropathy. In contrast, 23 patients who lacked anti-MAG reactivity had more severe sensory motor neuropathy. Thus, IgM monoclonal gammopathy with reactivity against MAG may define a distinct clinical entity.
