Setting up clinical trials in WM
Prof. Dr. C. Buske
Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM)
Our Challenges
• A rare disease with all implications!
 No lobby
 No major ‘economic’ interest of
pharmaceutical companies
 No deep knowledge about this disease in
the community of physicians
 No major interest to participate in clinical
trials for physicians
 Scattered activity in academia
 Poor coordination of clinical trial activity
 Nearly no major phase III trials performed
until today

Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM)
How can we overcome all this?
• Working together
 Forming networks
 Speaking with one voice
 Coordinating forces and resources
 Patients on one side
 We as physicians on the other side

Our Goals:
-- setting up clinical trials
-- setting up national registries with the ultimate goal of a
pan-European registry
-- setting up biosampling with a European biobank for WM
-- fostering translational research („from bench to
bedside“)
-- being represented in all major treatment guidelines
 Making the disease more ‚public‘
Our Goals:
Together with our patients and patient
networks!

Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase (BTK):
A Critical Kinase for Lymphoma Cell Survival and
Proliferation
• Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) is an essential element of the BCR
signaling pathway
• Inhibitors of BTK block BCR signaling and induce apoptosis
• PCI-32765 (ibrutinib) forms bond with cysteine-481 in BTK
• Highly potent BTK inhibition at IC50 = 0.5 nM
• High degree of B-cell specificity
• Orally administered once daily dosing
