Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Update Virtual Program

January 20 @ 19:00 - 20:00 EST
Virtual Canada

Steve Treon is the Director of the Bing Center for Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia (WM) at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Chair of the WM Clinical Trials Group.
His laboratory first identified highly recurring activating mutations in MYD88 and CXCR4 using whole genome sequencing. Professor Treon’s laboratory also identified that Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) was a downstream target of mutated MYD88, and enabled a clinical trial with the BTK inhibitor ibrutinib that resulted in the first-ever approval of a drug by the U.S. FDA and the European Medicines Agency for WM. Professor Treon also made major contributions to the investigation and advancement of many novel agents used to treat WM including monoclonal antibodies, nucleoside analogues, bendamustine, proteasome inhibitors, and BTK inhibitors.
Please join the Waldenstroms's Macroglobulinemia Foundation of Canada for a free virtual education program for hematologists and medical specialists. Professor Treon will discuss the latest advances in Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia from diagnosis to living with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
Participants will learn about the newest treatment options, signs and symptoms, clinical trials, and managing side effects. The impact of COVID 19 and the vaccine will be discussed. We will also review key questions to discuss with your patients, quality of life and the future of Waldenstrom’s treatment.
