The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether autologous stem cell transplantation will improve the survival of patients with high-risk Waldenström macroglobulinemia, compared with conventional chemotherapy.
WM patients with partial response after introduction chemotherapy will be recommended to adopt autologous stem cell transplantation or receive conventional chemotherapy (dependent on patient's choices). After transplantation or conventional chemotherapy, maintenance therapy with rituximab or thalidomide plus prednisone will be given for less than two years.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This research study is studying Daratumumab as a possible treatment for Waldenström Macroglobulinemia.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of cyclophosphamide plus dexamethasone combined with rituximab or bortezomib regimens in newly diagnosed Waldenström macroglobulinemia...
This study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy and clinical benefit of BGB-3111 vs ibrutinib in subjects with MYD88 Mutation Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia.
RATIONALE: Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies can locate cancer cells and deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may b...
This is a multi-center, single-arm, open label, non-randomized, phase II study designed to investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of obinutuzumab given as monotherapy in patient...
autologous stem cell transplantation following high-dose chemotherapy (HDC/ASCT) is the prime model to study the impact of HDC in HIV-1-infected participants. We analyzed the impact of HDC/ASCT on the...
Carmustine (BCNU)-Etoposide-Citarabine-Melphalan (BEAM) chemotherapy is the standard conditioning regimen for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in lymphomas. Owing to BCNU shortages, many ce...
Currently, there are only 2 case reports of Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) associated with severe neutropenia. This is a case report of a woman with a past medical history of WM who presented wit...
Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare B-cell lymphoma characterized by lymphoplasmacytic cell infiltration in the bone marrow and other organs and the presence of a monoclonal immunoglobulin M...
Natalizumab (NTZ) is a highly effective treatment for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), but its withdrawal is often followed by disease reactivation or rebound, even if other disease-modi...
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
