Overview

On a series of thirty trephine bone marrow biopsies from patients with multiple myeloma, theauthors evaluated expression of markers of cell proliferation or of its blockade (Ki-67, PCNA,topoisomerase IIa, cyclin D-1, AgNOR, and p27 kip1 ) and markers indicating multidrug resistance(P-170 and Bcl-2). Expression of Ki-67 and of topoisomerase IIa was unfrequent. Marked positivityof PCNA was expressed in about one third of cases, negative staining was exceptional. No expres-sion of cyclin D-1 was noted. Positivity of p27 kip1 was frequent. P-170 was demonstrated in a smallnumber of cases, Bcl-2 was strongly positive in most cases. The results characterise multiplemyeloma as a tumour with low proliferation rate and, simultaneously, with high resistance toapoptosis.
