ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01287741

Purpose for Clinical Trial

This open-label, randomized, parallel group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of obinutuzumab (RO5072759) in combination with CHOP chemotherapy versus MabThera/Rituxan (rituximab) with CHOP in previously untreated patients with CD20-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Patients will be randomized to receive either obinutuzumab 1000 mg intravenously (iv) every 21 days or MabThera/Rituxan 375 mg/m2 iv every 21 days for 8 cycles, in addition to 6-8 cycles of CHOP chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone) iv every 21 days. Anticipated time on study treatment is 24 weeks.

Secondary Outcome Measures For Clinical Trial:

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Complete response rate at the end of treatment, assessed by investigator and IRC [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival assessed by the Independent Review Committee [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Event-free survival, defined as time to progression or relapse, or initiation of non-protocol-specified anti-lymphoma therapy, or death, whichever occurs first [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disease-free survival, assessed by investigator [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of response, assessed by the investigator [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to next lymphoma treatment [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life (Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Lymphoma subscale, Euro-Quality of Life 5D questionnaire, European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Core 30) [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Medical resource utilization (hospitalizations, drug therapies, medical and surgical procedures and treatments) [ Time Frame: up to approximately 78 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
