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.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
