Objectives: We investigated the ability of fluorine 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ([18F]FDG-PET ) to predict clinical outcomes after high-dose chemotherapy combined with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HDT/SCT) in patients with Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s aggressive lymphoma.

Methods: Pre-transplant PET and CT was performed in 48 patients (30 patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, 18 patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma). Twenty patients were PET negative before HSCT and 28 patients were PET positive despite salvage second line chemotherapy (DHAP, ICE, or gemcitabine-containing regimen). According to CT data alone, 9 patients were in CR, 21 patients – in PR, 10 patients had stable disease, and 8 patients had progressive disease.

Results: The median follow-up period was 1 year 10 months. The 3-year overall survival (OS) was 100 % for patients with complete response according to CT data, 67% in patients reaching partial response before HSCT, and 39% for patients with stable or progressive disease at the moment of transplantation (p= 0.021; Fig 1a). PET negative patients had an OS=of 87%, whereas PET-positive patients demonstrated 43% OS (p=0.013; Fig 1b).

Conclusion: FDG-PET is a powerful prognostic factor for patients undergoing auto-HSCT. It could be use for selection of patients for auto-HSCT.

Keywords: lymphoma, positron emission tomography, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
