Our Treatment for Secondary Systemic Amyloidosis at the Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers

Secondary systemic amyloidosis is a disorder in which abnormal proteins build up in the tissues and organs and form clumps, called amyloid deposits. “Secondary” means that it occurs because of another disease, often from multiple myeloma. “Systemic” means that the disease affects the whole body.
