Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), a rare and aggressive disease, accounts for approximately 5% of all B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. Evidence on the burden of this disease, for patients and healthcare providers, is scarce. Four systematic literature reviews were developed to identify epidemiological, real-world clinical, economic and humanistic burden data on patients with MCL. Electronic databases searched included MEDLINE and Embase, NHS EED and Econlit. Eight epidemiological studies, 19 clinical burden, 2 economic impact, and 0 quality of life studies were identified. Standardized MCL incidence rates ranged from 0.1-1.27/100,000. Overall survival rates of patients at 3 years differed by age at diagnosis (≤65 years: 76-81%, >65 years: 46-64%) and disease stage (stage I: 73-80%, stage IV: 48-53%). Outcomes were poorer in previously-treated patients, those with later stage or blastoid disease and improved with more recent diagnosis/treatment. Hospitalization is a major contributor to healthcare cost and differs by therapy toxicity. We identified significant data gaps for many G20 countries for epidemiology, real-world clinical, economic, and humanistic burden. These literature reviews demonstrate the ongoing unmet need for MCL patients globally. Future research to further understand the real-world impact of MCL is needed along with new therapeutic options to improve patient outcomes.
