ICML 2017 | Clinicogenetic risk models to predict outcome of follicular lymphoma patients

Sarah Huet, PharmD, PhD from the Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud, Pierre- Bénite, France discusses her work on clinicogenetic risk models for outcome of follicular lymphoma patients in the PRIMA trial. The clinicogenetic models combine clinical variables as well as genetic risk factors. Two risk models have been developed in the last two years to identify patients with aggressive disease and short remission times. These were evaluated in a cohort of patients from the PRIMA trial which looked at rituximab maintenance post immunotherapy. In addition, the added value of these new prognostic indexes were compared to the older models FLIPI 1 and FLIPI 2. This interview was recorded at the International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma (ICML) 2017 in Lugano, Switzerland.
