How I Treat Waldenstrom's MacroglobulinemiaHow I treat Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia - Steven P. Treon
Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) is a B-cell neoplasm manifested by the accumulation of clonal IgM secreting lymphoplasmacytic cells. MYD88 and CXCR4 WHIM-like somatic mutations are present in >90%, and 30-35% of WM patients, respectively, and impact disease presentation, treatment outcome, and/or overall survival. ...


Biology, Prognosis, and Therapy of Waldenström MacroglobulinemiaBiology, Prognosis, and Therapy of Waldenström Macroglobulinemia
Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare B-cell lymphoma characterized by the uncontrolled accumulation of malignant lymphoplasmacytic cells, mainly in the bone marrow, and monoclonal IgM production. Despite its rarity, our understanding of the biology of this disease has improved significantly in recent years with the identification of recurrent mutations in the MYD88 and CXCR4 genes. ...

Ibrutinib in Previously Treated Waldenström’s MacroglobulinemiaIbrutinib in Previously Treated Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia
MYD88L265P and CXCR4WHIM mutations are highly prevalent in Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia. MYD88L265P triggers tumor-cell growth through Bruton’s tyrosine kinase, a target of ibrutinib. CXCR4WHIM mutations confer in vitro resistance to ibrutinib. ...


Survival outcomes of secondary cancers in patients with Waldenström Macroglobulinemia: An analysis of the SEER databaseSurvival outcomes of secondary cancers in patients with Waldenström Macroglobulinemia: An analysis of the SEER database
We hypothesized that survival outcomes of WM patients who develop SM is distinct from the general population of individuals who develop those same malignancies. Using the SEER-18 data (2000-2011), we identified patients with cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, colorectum, bladder, melanoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and acute leukemia, and compared their outcomes according to having antecedent WM or not. ...
