Sixty-eight previously untreated patients with primary gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) available for analysis, were entered in a study in which the prognostic significance of serum beta 2 microglobulin levels were evaluated. The serum beta 2 microglobulin was the most significant prognostic factor. Patients with high levels (greater than 3.5 micrograms/mL) had a relapse-free survival (RFS) of 36 months, while the median RFS has not been reached in patients with normal levels (p less than 0… CONTINUE READING
