More on tests for myeloma

Earlier I mentioned that I had a complete bone scan to rule out myeloma. I just went through the thick stack of medical records and found another test that had been performed. I totally forgot about it. This was a blood test called CLLYMPAN (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Pan). Here is what was being tested and my results (I am omitting results for all the different CD receptors under each category):

[I]WORKING DIAGNOSIS: Rule out lymphoma

[*]B-cell antigens = moderate positive
[*]Kappa + B cells = polyclonal
[*]Lambda + B cells = polyclonal
[*]T-cell antigens = moderate positive
[*]Miscellaneous antigens = negative/moderate positive
INTERPRETATION: There is no evidence of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder.[/I]
