When cancer involves plasma cells, the body keeps producing more and more of plasma cells. The unwanted plasma cells of all abnormal and exactly alike are called as myeloma cells. Myeloma cells tend to collect in the bone marrow and in the hard, outer part of the bones. In most cases, the myeloma cells collect in various bones, often forming many tumors. When this happens, the disease is called multiple myeloma.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
