Abstract

Febrile neutropenia (FN) risk-assessment and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) prophylaxis use in clinical practice was evaluated in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma receiving R-CHOP-21. More G-CSF primary prophylaxis was used in patients assessed as high FN risk, but R-CHOP-21 was associated with substantial myelotoxicity in both high- and low-risk groups. In a multivariate analysis, older age, poor performance status, lower baseline hemoglobin, and lack of G-CSF prophylaxis were significantly associated with occurrence of FN in any cycle. Results highlight the need for improved FN risk-assessment and thorough guideline adherence to further reduce FN and better support chemotherapy delivery.
