(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell malignancy with a significant heritable basis. Genome-wide association studies have transformed our understanding of MM predisposition, but individual studies have had limited power ...

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have transformed our understanding of susceptibility to multiple myeloma (MM), but much of the heritability remains unexplained. We report a new GWAS, a meta-analysis with previous ...
    • Lenalidomide versus lenalidomide + dexamethasone prolonged treatment after second-line lenalidomide + dexamethasone induction in multiple myeloma 

      Lund, Johan; Gruber, Astrid; Lauri, Birgitta; Duru, Adil Doganay; Blimark, Cecilie; Swedin, Agneta; Hansson, Markus; Forsberg, Karin; Ahlberg, Lucia; Carlsson, Conny; Waage, Anders; Gimsing, Peter; Vangsted, Annette Juul; Frølund, Ulf; Holmberg, Erik; Gahrton, Gösta C.A.; Alici, Evren; Hardling, Mats; Mellqvist, Ulf-Henrik; Nahi, Hareth (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Lenalidomide (Len) plus dexamethasone (Dex) is approved for the treatment of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). It is possible that single‐agent Len may be effective as prolonged treatment regimen in RRMM once ...
    • The multiple myeloma risk allele at 5q15 lowers ELL2 expression and increases ribosomal gene expression 

      Ali, Mina; Ajore, Ram; Wihlborg, Anna-Karin; Niroula, Abhishek; Swaminathan, Bhairavi; Johnsson, Ellinor; Stephens, Owen W; Morgan, Gareth; Meissner, Tobias; Turesson, Ingemar; Goldschmidt, Hartmut; Mellqvist, Ulf-Henrik; Gullberg, Urban; Hansson, Markus; Hemminki, Kari; Nahi, Hareth; Waage, Anders; Weinhold, Niels; Nilsson, Björn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Recently, we identified ELL2 as a susceptibility gene for multiple myeloma (MM). To understand its mechanism of action, we performed expression quantitative trait locus analysis in CD138+ plasma cells from 1630 MM patients ...
    • Variants in ELL2 influencing immunoglobulin levels associate with multiple myeloma

      Multiple myeloma (MM) is characterized by an uninhibited, clonal growth of plasma cells. While first-degree relatives of patients with MM show an increased risk of MM, the genetic basis of inherited MM susceptibility is ...
