Background: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the most common hematologic malignancy in the world. Involvement of organochlorines has been proposed in disease etiology. No study has investigated organochlorine exposure in relation to survival after a NHL diagnosis.Methods: In a survivor cohort consisting of 232 NHL cases from the Danish Diet, Cancer and Health cohort, we examined the association between adipose tissue organochlorine concentrations [polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and pesticides] and subsequent survival, using Cox proportional hazards models.Results: We found no statistically significant association between organochlorine concentrations and subsequent survival. If anything, there was a nonsignificant tendency toward an inverse association with PCBs, but not pesticides.Conclusions: In conclusion, the current study does not support an increased risk of death among NHL patients with high tissue concentrations of organochlorines.Impact: This is the first study to investigate adipose organochlorine concentrations and survival after a NHL diagnosis.
