The Rory Morrison WMUK Registry (RMR) brings together data from patients with WM and related conditions including Bing Neel syndrome (BNS), peripheral neuropathies such as anti-MAG neuropathy, cold agglutinin disease (CAD) and cryoglobulinaemia.
Doctors in the hospitals that treat WM patients can join the project and upload information about their patients directly onto the RMR.
These “real-world” data can be used to answer key questions about WM such as:
- the time from diagnosis to treatment
- the symptoms that indicate treatment is needed
- response rates to treatments
- the variety of treatments used and changing patterns
- the impact and value of new treatments, eg. Ibrutinib
- how WM impacts on quality of life of patients
The uniqueness of the RMR is that it collects and analyses data across the whole patient pathway, including complications and outcomes specific to WM.
The RMR contains two important but different types of data:
- clinical data from the medical teams in participating centres
- quality of life data direct from patients - this is collected via a questionnaire distributed at regular intervals by email directly to patients
A list of current participating centres can be found here, although you do not have to be treated at one of the participating centres to have your data included.
Who is Rory Morrison?
The Registry is dedicated to the memory of Rory Morrison, the much-loved BBC Radio 4 broadcaster who had WM and sadly died in 2013. Rory was one of the first contributors to the Registry.
The centres participating in The Rory Morrison WMUK Registry (RMR) are listed below.
If your centre is not on the list, you could request a referral to one of the listed centres for purposes of capturing your data. This does not mean you have to transfer all your care to this centre.
If your regular consultant is not at one of the listed centres please encourage them to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how they can participate.
