Myeloma occurs disproportionately in African Americans, with disparities in outcomes potentially caused by access to care, cytogenetics, and immunity.

Data for other diseases suggest innate differences in immunity and inflammatory markers, with potential implications for therapeutic monoclonal antibodies reliant on secondary immune activation for activity.
