A natural subdivision of patients with myeloma is attempted according to the globulin pattern as it is defined immunoelectrophoretically.

No special sensitivity could be traced in any group, but the general results regarding decrease in pathological globulin and increase in albumin were often excellent. Also, the subjective symptoms were ameliorated. The inhibition of normal gamma globulin formation was studied during treatment. Few side
