Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as chlorambucil and fludarabine, work in
different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping
them from dividing. It is not yet known whether chlorambucil is more effective than
fludarabine in treating Waldenström macroglobulinemia, splenic lymphoma, or lymphoplasmacytic
lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying chlorambucil to see how well it works
compared with fludarabine as first-line therapy in treating patients with previously
untreated Waldenström macroglobulinemia, splenic lymphoma, or lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma.
