An abnormal rHLC indicates whether the monoclonal protein is still present, and the iHLC concentration provides the concentration of the monoclonal protein.
If the rHLC is abnormal, no IFE is needed and the iHLC provides quantification.
 Nonstandard abbreviations: MM, multiple myeloma; FLC, free light chain; IFE, immunofixation electrophoresis; HLC, heavy/light chain; rHLC, HLC pair ratio; SPEP, serum protein electrophoresis; RI, reference interval; MGUS, monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance; iHLC, involved HLC.
The CVI for IHLC was 0.965 for CHLC 0.980 for PHLC 100 and for GLHC it was 100.
The God subscale has a higher degree of internal consistency than the other three subscales which is similar to that of a study18 which reported Cronbach alpha coefficient for GLHC to be 0.88 and for IHLC PHLC and CHLC 0.6 0.65 and 0.68 respectively.
The highest and lowest scores were related to internal factors and chance respectively and were similar to previous studies.131824 Among studies in various populations the highest score relates to IHLC and seemingly the difference among the subscale scores are of great importance in comparisons and conclusions.
Standard deviations for IHLC scores were between 1.06-1.48.
Five out of six IHLC items, with means of more than 4.4 (i.e., between slightly agree to moderately agree), indicated that a large section of students exhibited internal health-related LOC.
The current study investigated the possible effects of selected demographic variables, PHLC, IHLC, and CHLC on attitude towards AIDS.

The second variable entered into the equation was the internal health locus of control (IHLC) score; its unique explanation of the total variance produced on the reported physical symptom scores was also significant (F (1,204) = 4.74, p < .05) and accounted for an additional 2% of the variance.
