Quebec Plasma Cell
This site seeks to promote the Quebec Plasma Cell Dyscrasia Group (GMPQ) within the medical community. It aims to share the most current information on plasma cell diseases with this community via a secure web platform, access to which is reserved for medical professionals.
The secure part of the website is reserved for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and resident doctors.
The Quebec Plasma Cell Dyscrasia Group (GMPQ) is a Quebec-based nonprofit organization that brings together physicians who specialize in plasma cell diseases in the province.
Its mission is to promote excellence in myeloma care in Quebec by encouraging the dissemination of knowledge and clinical research. This mission is fulfilled in three primary ways:
By providing guidelines on the treatment of plasma cell diseases to healthcare personnel in Quebec.
By providing training to healthcare professionals who treat plasma cell diseases in Quebec.
By playing a role in advancing research on plasma cell diseases.
What is plasma cell disease?
Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) is a common and benign condition that requires regular monitoring without the need for treatment.
MGUS may eventually evolve into a plasma cell disease. Plasma cell diseases are a group of conditions which are caused by clonal plasma cell proliferation.
The most common types of plasma cell diseases are multiple myeloma, light chain amyloidosis, and monoclonal gammopathy of clinical significance (MGCS, including monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance [MGRS] ).
