Dr. Mark Bustoros, of Dana Farber Cancer Institute, provides a brief overview of his research. He identified risk factors that lead to disease progression and the appearance of symptoms in patients diagnosed with Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia.


The research team developed a classification system to stratify the patients into high, intermediate, or low risk groups that can help identify patients who might benefit from early treatment.
