    Mantle Cell Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (MIPI)

    Predicts survival in patients with mantle cell lymphoma.
    When to Use
    Why Use

    Use in patients presenting with advanced stage mantle cell lymphoma, to help prognosticate and potentially determine therapy.

    • While most patients with advanced mantle cell lymphoma need to be treated soon after diagnosis, there is growing recognition of a small percentage of very low risk patients who may not need treatment for a much longer period.
    • If Ki-67 is available, it can be added to calculate the MIPIb or “biologic" score.

    The MIPI is more specific to mantle cell lymphoma than the International Prognostic Index (IPI).
