Abstract

Aim: To examine whether the center type and socioeconomic factors significantly impact 1-month mortality and overall survival (OS) of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Methods: National Cancer Database (NCDB) was used to identify patients diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma from 2006 to 2012 (postrituximab era). Results: Among 185,183 patients, 33% were treated at academic centers. The receipt of therapy at larger volume centers was associated with improved 1-month mortality. Academic centers had better OS than nonacademic centers in univariable analysis. Younger age, private insurance, lower Charlson comorbidity score and lower lymphoma stage were associated with improved 1-month mortality and OS. Conclusion: The receipt of therapy at larger volume centers and socioeconomic factors were associated with improved survival.
