Abstract

Amyloidosis is a metabolic disease which is characteristic for the deposition of amyloid substances in various organs. Currently chemical types have been clarified for some types of amyloid-related proteins such as AL for primary or myeloma-associated amyloidosis, AA for secondary amyloidosis and transthyretin (TTR) variant for familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP).
