Research

Mayo Clinic researchers are conducting studies that may help:

  • Define the mechanisms of amyloid formation
  • Find biomarkers for AL amyloidosis
  • Improve methods for identifying amyloid type
  • Investigate outcomes for standard compared with high-dose chemotherapy combined with stem cell transplant
  • Discover antibodies with the potential to dissolve amyloid deposits

Mayo Clinic researchers also conduct clinical trials of new amyloidosis treatments. Read more about research in the Mayo Clinic Protein Misfolding Laboratory.
