Free Light Chains in Blood and Urine May Aid in Diagnosis, Mark Activity

The amount of free light chain (FLC) molecules in blood and urine correspond to the severity of scleroderma, adding to the evidence supporting these molecules as biomarkers for early diagnosis and disease activity. The pilot study detailing this finding, “Serum and urine free light chains measurements in patients with systemic sclerosis: novel biomarkers for disease activity,” was published in the journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology. Free light chain molecules are made during the production of antibodies,…
