Q. Does anyone know anything about MGUS?

AMGUS is a condition that affects a type of white blood cell known as a plasma cell. Plasma cells are a type of white blood cell that produce special proteins, known as antibodies or immunoglobulins. These antibodies circulate in the blood, ready to attack any viruses and bacteria that may be present in the body.
When an abnormally large amount of one particular antibody is produced, this is called monoclonal gammopathy. All the antibodies are identical.
