DLBCL: Survival Determinants
Where a person lives at the time of being diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma has a positive effect on their survival. The study examined the relationship between the location of a patient’s residence and health outcomes.
The study was undertaken in British Columbia, Canada, where publicly funded universal healthcare is available. Five-year overall survival was 62% for those living in rural areas, 60% in large urban areas, 53% in medium-size urban areas and 44% in small urban areas. For more information, click here.
