Answer

The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) recommends the 2008 MCL International Prognostic Index (MIPI) for risk stratification. [18] The MIPI includes the following risk factors [11] :

  • Age: 50-59 (1 point); 60-69 (2 points); ≥70 (3 points)

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≥2 (2 points)

  • Lactate dehydrogenase level (ratio to upper limit of normal): 0.67-0.99 (1 point); 1.00-1.49 (2 points); ≥1.50 (3 points)

  • White blood cell count (× 109/L): 6700-9999 (1 point); 10,000-14,999 (2 points); ≥15,000 (3 points)
