The yearly MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM), brought into life in 2002 as a platform to gather all international partners of MetaSystems and other members of the global MetaSystems family, just ended last week. The DM is being organized in turns by MetaSystems Headquarters, MetaSystems USA (MGI), and MetaSystems Asia. Since MGI is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018 they decided to choose a special location: Nassau, The Bahamas!

Genetic aberrations present in multiple myeloma cells play a significant role in the risk stratification and therapeutic approach in multiple myeloma patients. Chromosomal translocations affecting the IGH locus are recurrent in many types of leukemias and lymphomas. The malignant transformation works via the juxtaposition of oncogenes next to regulatory sequences of the immunoglobulin locus.
The t(14;16) is found in 5-7 % of all MM cases. The presence of t(14;16) has been associated with more aggressive disease and shorter survival among patients treated with either conventional or high-dose chemotherapy.
