Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare indolent B-cell lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma that is seen predominantly in older patients. Effective management of WM remains a significant clinical challenge, as there is no single standard-of-care, new treatments are emerging rapidly, and data from head-to-head comparisons of treatment combinations is limited. Additionally, two recently identified mutations, MYD88 and CXCR4, have been shown to have implications on WM prognosis and treatment.

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of hematologists, oncologists, hematologist-oncologists, advanced practice providers, and other health care providers who treat patients with WM.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Evaluate current recommended treatment options, describe when it is appropriate to initiate treatment for WM patients, and optimize outcomes for patients with WM
- Identify emerging treatment advances and understand the implications of current real-world treatment outcomes data for patients with WM
