211 patients were identified for this retrospective study across Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Hollywood Private Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital, British Columbia Centre for Lymphoid Cancer, Aalborg University Hospital, and Nottingham University Hospital.
Key points of note:
– In early-stage DLBCL, COO and DE/DH [gene expression] status may not confer an inferior prognosis.
– Stage I/II DLBCL has an excellent outcome when treated with R-CHOP–like therapy ± radiation, with 4-year Progression Free Survival and Overall Survival rates of 85% and 88%.
