“Update on Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (WM)”
On February 13, 2018, Dr. Stephen Ansell recorded this lecture for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The lecture on WM, featuring Dr. Ansell, Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN is available at the LLS website.
This one hour video on WM includes:
- Who needs treatment at presentation
- Treatment options for newly diagnosed and relapsed patients
- Standard treatment options
- Newly diagnosed patients
- Relapsed patients
LLS Virtual Lecture Programs offer a convenient opportunity to learn about the latest disease-specific information from medical experts. Dr. Ansell’s pre-recorded presentation on WM will be available to view for approximately 12 - 18 months. You can view the slides with transcript of the lecture or view slides alone.
Support for this program provided by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in collaboration with The International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF).

"Genomic-based Advances in WM" On March 6, 2016, Dr. Jorge Castillo spoke to the Philadelphia IWMF Support Group on Genomic-based Advances in WM. Dr. Castillo, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, is one of the world’s leading clinicians for Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, and provides a valuable perspective, especially since:
- There are approximately 1,500 WM patients diagnosed each year in the United States.
- Dr. Castillo sees approximately 750 WM patients each year!
- Most community oncologists see 0, 1, 2, or 3 WM patients in their career, Dr. Castillo probably sees more WM patients in a morning than most oncologists see in a lifetime.
This video is almost 2 hours in length.
"Waldenstrom's and MGUS in Families: Your Questions and Answers." Dr. Mary Lou McMaster of NIH discusses WM biology and treatments and focuses on the topic of familial WM in her presentation to the Northern Virginia IWMF Support Group in October 2014.
