This section is specifically directed to physicians who have WM patients. Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare and unique disease. Many oncologists may not have encountered patients with this type of blood cancer before. We hope you will read the information recommended to you in this section prior to deciding on a treatment protocol for your patients. If the IWMF can be of assistance to you in any other way, please let us know.
There is a tremendous amount of basic research into WM underway in both the US and abroad, resulting in new pharmaceutical protocols and rapidly changing therapeutic opportunities .
The remainder of this section will assist you in learning more about diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of WM and guide you to additional professional resources.
