About this Calculator

Prognosis depends on the sum of 5 factors (the mnemonic NoLASH may be useful):

  • Number of Nodal areas
  • LDH
  • Age
  • Stage
  • Hemoglobin level

The Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI) is the result of a large international cooperative effort in which clinical data was collected from 4167 patients with FL diagnosed between 1985 and 1992. From this database, a prognostic index with five adverse factors was derived and validated. The index is able to separate 3 risk groups of approximately eqaul size with clear differentiation of long-term prognosis.
