A “robust” 23-gene expression-based model successfully predicted progression-free survival (PFS) for patients with follicular lymphoma enrolled in the phase III randomized PRIMA trial.
“Despite recent progress in the stratification and management of patients with follicular lymphoma, a substantial proportion of patients are still underserved by existing standard treatment and have rapid progression of their disease,” wrote Salles et al. “Our gene-expression predictor could be valuable in the clinical setting to identify patients at high risk or low risk of progression so as to adjust the therapeutic strategy and enrollment for innovative treatments.”
