Real World Data on PTCL
To complement retrospective analyses of clinical trials, an analysis of prognostic factors and outcomes in an unselected population-based cohort of patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) was undertaken.
Patients (n = 755) who were diagnosed with PTCL over a 10-year period were identified in the Swedish Lymphoma Registry. International Prognostic Index factors and male sex were associated with poor overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). An intention-to-treat analysis of 252 patients with nodal PTCL and excluding ALK-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma showed upfront autologous stem cell transplantation (autoSCT) was associated with improved OS and PFS compared with patients who did not receive autoSCT.
