The purpose of this study is to determine if the type of Fc gamma RIIIa receptor that a particular patient's immune cells possess influences how they respond to rituximab and other monoclonal antibodies.

Condition Intervention
Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia
Drug: Rituximab
Drug: monoclonal antibodies

Study Type: Interventional
Official Title: Correlation of Fc Gamma RIIIA Receptor Expression and Response to Rituximab and Other Monoclonal Antibodies in Patients With Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: January 2002
Study Completion Date: March 2007
Primary Completion Date: March 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
  • A medical data collection survey sheet will be filled out by the patient or doctor with medical information pertaining to how the patient responded to rituximab and other monoclonal antibodies for use in this study.
  • Blood work will be performed to analyze the blood by molecular technology to find the kind of Fc gamna RIIIa receptor the patient possess and correlate these findings with the outcome of treatment with rituximab or other monoclonal antibodies.

Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years to 90 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients treated with rituximab or other monoclonal antibodies for Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia
