In brief: Yes

Amyloidosis is actually a constellation of illnesses characterized by the deposition of protein fragments in various tissues of the body.
The prognosis and treatability of the illness depends upon the type of fragments, the amount of amyloid material and the specific sites of deposition. Hope this helps.
