Classic clinical findings of multiple myeloma include: bone pain, hypercalcemia, chronic renal insufficiency, anemia, positive serum/urine IgM, IgG/IgA M spike on SPEP, positive urine Ig light chains, and increased serum beta-2-microglobulin
; all of which were present in our patient except for hypercalcemia.

Exclusion criteria included individuals with end stage kidney disease , a history of urinary tract infection in the one month preceding the interview, renal ultrasound features suggestive of structural urinary tract abnormalities , diseases associated with increased serum beta-2-microglobulin
(HIV disease , lymphomas, multiple myeloma, and connective tissue disease ), and history of aminoglycoside use in the two weeks preceding the day of the interview .
These expressed genes which improve quality of milk are "immunoglobulins," "MHC," and "beta-2-microglobulin
." Because lactation begins few weeks before parturition  and we choose sequenced cDNA clones randomly, these putative genes are found approximately at the same rate in prenatal and postnatal ESTs.

We amplified the [TFRC.sup.3] [transferrin receptor (p90, CD71)], B2M (beta-2-microglobulin
), and KRAS (vKi-ras2 Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog) genes (see Table 3 in the online Data Supplement) with 2 U MyTaqHS[TM] DNA Polymerase (Bioline) with a final Mg[Cl.sub.2] concentration of 8 mmol/L and either IM9 gDNA (125, 31, 8, 2, or 0.5 ng) or NF-[H.sub.2]O.
Cd excreted in urine (U-Cd) is widely used to assess exposure or body burden of Cd in the general population, and the excretion of LMW proteins such as beta-2-microglobulin
is used as a measure of adverse effects on the kidney (EFSA 2009; Jarup et al.
