Survival Data (Clinical Relevance)
The survival curves (Fig. 4) obtained by the Kiel Lymphoma Study Group in a retrospective study demonstrated that the Kiel classification is clinically relevant (e.g. Brittinger et al. 1976). Although a prospective study by the same group has not yet been completed, the preliminary data disclose the same basic trends (Fig. 5).8 It has also become evident that centroblastic lymphoma differs from the other types of high-grade malignant lymphoma because of its relatively favourable prognosis.
