European Consortium for Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia (ECWM)
The ECWM joins forces in Europe in a consortium, which has the vision to combine the expertise of clinicians, pathologists and researchers across Europe to develop novel strategies to diagnose, prognostify and treat patients with WM.
The ECWM is based on a clinical intergroup connecting all major clinical national study groups. This clinical intergroup forms a unique platform for setting up large clinical and innovative trials in a rare disease such as WM.
Currently several clinical trials are initiated which offer patients with WM novel therapeutic approaches in the setting of well controlled clinical trials.

Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia Clinical Trials Group (WMCTG)

The WMCTG is comprised of over 20 major cancer centers around the world. Their mission is to maintain active clinical trials year round in an effort to constantly improve the understanding and continue to offer patients the most effective treatments for Waldenström's macroglobulinemia. By maintaining an extensive contingent of collaborating centers, they hope to be better able to enroll patients in the trials without delay. Not only does the WMCTG allow more convenient patient access to treatment, but will also facilitate completion of clinicl tials in a more timely manner.

At you can find more information about the physicians belonging to the WMCTG, including six European members and see in what WM clinical trials each one of them is involved.
