Background:High levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), an acute phase protein, proofed being associated with decreased clinical outcome in small-scale studies in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of pretreatment CRP levels on overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) in a large bicentre study of DLBCL patients.Methods:Data from 477 DLBCL patients, diagnosed and treated between 2004 and 2013 at two Austrian centres, were… CONTINUE READING
