Background: Signal peptide-CUB-EGF-like domain-containing protein I (SCUBE1) is expressed in vascular endothelium and human platelets. SCUBE I levels are increased in acute arterial thrombosis. Multiple myeloma patients are also at increased risk of arterial thrombotic events. This study aimed to measure SCUBE1 levels in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients and to define whether SCUBE1 could be a useful marker determining the arterial thrombotic risk.
