Prognose und Therapie der AL-Amyloidose

  • Timon HansenEmail author

Trotz gewisser Fortschritte in der Therapie der AL-Amyloidose ist die Prognose in vielen Fällen immer noch ungünstig. Grund dafür ist, dass die Diagnose häufig erst dann gestellt wird, wenn schon ausgedehnte Organschäden bestehen, die meist irreversibel sind. Dies soll sich zukünftig jedoch ändern.
