Service of Clinical Hematology, Hospital Geral de Santo António, Rua D Manual II, s/n, 4050 Porto, Portugal. firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract We describe the immunophenotypic and gross DNA defects in 55 patients with myeloma and 50 patients with monoclonal gammopathy and review the literature on this subject (MedLine, 1994-2000). Our data confirmed previous reports indicating that in myeloma nearly all marrow plasma cells are abnormal (98.7 +/- 8.1%). In monoclonal gammopathy the fraction of abnormal plasma cells was 35.0 +/- 32.8%. In both myeloma and monoclonal gammopathy, the most frequent aberrant phenotypic features consisted of absence of expression of CD19, strong expression of CD56, and decreased intensity of expression of CD38; aberrant expression of CD10, CD20, CD22, or CD28 was observed in less than one-third of myeloma cases. The vast majority of cases had two or more phenotypic aberrations. In the DNA studies, 7% of myeloma cases were biclonal and 93% of cases were monoclonal. In those studies with only one plasma cell mitotic cycle, 37% had normal DNA content and 63% were aneuploid (hyperploid, 61%; hypoploid, 2%). The mean percentages of plasma cells in S- and G2M phases were 4.9 +/- 8.5 and 4.4 +/- 6.9%, respectively. Thirty-eight percent of cases had more than 3% of plasma cells in S phase. In monoclonal gammopathy, the DNA index of abnormal plasma cells ranged from 0.89 to 1.30 and the percentage of diploid (31%) and aneuploid (69%) cases was not different from the results found in myeloma. The differences in percentage of abnormal plasma cells in S- (7.4 +/- 8.6%) and G2M-phases (2.4 +/- 1.7%) in patients with monoclonal gammopathy were not statistically significant.
