Laboratory studies include but are not limited to complete blood count, blood smear, blood sedimentation rate, renal function, electrolyte (calcium), serum and urine protein electrophoresis, quantitative Ig determination in serum, immunoelectrophoresis in serum and urine, and B-2 microglobulin determination in serum.
Serum immunoelectrophoresis showed an increase in M-protein [immunoglobulin (IgG) [kappa] type] and also a decrease in albumin of plasma and albumin/globulin ratio was lower than normal.
A way to overcome these limitations is to combine several tests [2] and the most used approach is initial screening with latex agglutination, double diffusion, indirect hemagglutination, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, followed by confirmatory tests using specific antigens, for example, the antigen 5 immunoelectrophoresis and immunoblotting [3].
