Several studies have indicated that age, hemoglobin and serum albumin are among the most important prognostic factors for survival of patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM). Furthermore, recent data indicate that serum b2-microglobulin may be also significant. The recently proposed International Staging System (ISS) for multiple myeloma is based on serum albumin and b2-microglobulin. We designed a study to assess this model in patients with WM. Our analysis included 83 previously… CONTINUE READING
