Survival by Race and Ethnicity in Pediatric and Adolescent Patients With Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Children's Oncology Group Study.


Population-based studies of children and adolescents with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) report a survival disadvantage in nonwhite-non-Hispanic black (NHB) and Hispanic-patients. Whether disparities persist after adjustment for clinical and treatment-related variables is unknown. We examined survival by race/ethnicity in children receiving risk-based, response-adapted, combined-modality therapy for HL in contemporary Children's Oncology Group trials.
