Abstract

CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone) ± rituximab [(± R)CHOP] is the current standard of care for aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Anemia resulting from chemotherapy can be treated with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs). As part of the observational IMPACT NHL study, data were collected on ESA use and anemia-related outcomes in 1829 adults receiving (± R)CHOP-14 or (± R)CHOP-21. Overall, 33% of patients were anemic during chemotherapy. Older age, lower baseline hemoglobin (Hb), worse performance status, more advanced disease stage, and use of CHOP-14 were significant predictors of transfusion and anemia in logistic regression models. ESAs were received by 404 patients, usually in response to low or declining Hb levels. Most patients (65%) had Hb 9-11 g/dL at ESA initiation, and 89% (Kaplan-Meier percentage) achieved Hb 10-12 g/dL. In conclusion, two-thirds of anemic patients with NHL receiving (± R)CHOP initiated ESA treatment at Hb 9-11 g/dL, and most achieved target Hb levels (10-12 g/dL).
