Validation of the Marginal Zone Lymphoma International Prognostic Index.

Annals of Hematology 2018 October 12
The Marginal Zone Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (MALT-IPI) was recently developed for use in patients with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma based on age, serum lactate dehydrogenase level, and Ann Arbor stage. In this study, we aimed to validate the MALT-IPI. A total of 455 MALT lymphoma patients were included in this study from between January 2005 and February 2017. Event-free survival (EFS), progression-free survival (PFS), cause-specific survival (CSS), and overall survival (OS) were the primary outcomes. Of the 455 patients, MALT-IPI low-, intermediate-, and high-risk groups included 309 (67.9%), 126 (27.7%), and 20 (4.4%) individuals, respectively. When comparing the low-risk group (L MALT-IPI) with the intermediate-high-risk group (I-H MALT-IPI), EFS, PFS, CSS, and OS were significantly different (p = 0.000, p = 0.000, p = 0.027, and p = 0.037). The International Prognostic Index and the Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index failed to predict the prognosis of MALT lymphoma. Use of the MALT-IPI significantly differentiated L MALT-IPI from I-H MALT-IPI with respect to EFS, PFS, CSS, and OS. MALT-IPI is a valuable tool for the prediction of MALT lymphoma prognosis.
