Research activity

Multiple myeloma is a cancer caused by accumulation of malignant plasma cells within the bone marrow. Almost all myeloma patients suffer from an osteolytic bone disease, caused by increased numbers of cells degrading bone (osteoclasts) and reduced numbers of cells producing bone (osteoblasts). Bone destruction is also common in inflammtory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

My research focus is on how myeloma cells, myeloma derived factors and inflammation affects the activity and differentiation of osteoblast and osteoclasts. .
