PET membantu dalam memprediksi angka survival pada limfoma folikuker

PET results at an interim point and following chemotherapy may indicate survival outcomes for patients with previously untreated follicular lymphoma, according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. PET results were negative in 76% of interim patients and in 78% of final PET patients. The researchers also observed a 100% overall survival rate at two years in the final PET-negative group compared with 88% for final PET-positive patients. "The apparent better performance of PET at the end of treatment may indicate that metabolic response is slow in this indolent lymphoma and is better assessed after adequate treatment," British researchers wrote in an accompanying editorial.
