Answer

The 5-year relative survival rate of patients with NHL is 72.7%. [9] The survival rate has steadily improved over the last 2 decades, thanks to improvements in medical and nursing care, the advent of novel therapeutic strategies (ie, monoclonal antibodies, chimeric antigen receptor [CAR] T-cell therapy), validation of biomarkers of response, and the implementation of tailored treatment.
