  Purpose

Comparison of rituximab versus Iodine I 131 Tositumomab Therapeutic Regimen (Tositumomab and Iodine I 131 Tositumomab or the Bexxar Therapeutic Regimen, formerly called Iodine-131 Anti-B1 Antibody) in subjects with follicular non Hodgkins B cell lymphoma. 506 subjects will be enrolled at 30 to 40 sites in the US, Canada, and Europe. Subjects will be randomly assigned to one of two treatment arms. In Arm A, subjects will receive 375 milligrams/meter2 (mg/m2 )of rituximab, given as an intravenous (IV) infusion once weekly for 4 weeks. In Arm B, subjects will undergo a two-phase treatment. In the first phase, termed the "dosimetric dose," subjects will receive an infusion of unlabeled Tositumomab (450 mg) immediately followed by an infusion of 5 millicuries (mCi) (0.18 gigabecquerel [GBq]) of Iodine 131 Tositumomab (35 mg). Whole body gamma camera scans will be obtained three times (Day 0; Day 2, 3, or 4; and Day 6 or 7) following the dosimetric dose. The information derived from the scans will enable a patient specific dose to be calculated to deliver the desired total body dose of radiation (65 or 75 centigray [cGy]). In the second phase, termed the "therapeutic dose," subjects in Arm B will receive an infusion of unlabeled Tositumomab (450 mg) immediately followed by an infusion of the subject specific activity of Iodine 131-conjugated Tositumomab (35 mg). Thyroid blockade will be implemented 24 hours prior to the dosimetric dose and continued for 14 days following the therapeutic dose. Subjects on study will be followed for response and safety at Week 7, Week 13, and every three months for the first and second year, every six months for the third year, and then annually for the forth and fifth years; and then for vital status, additional therapy, and long term safety events through year ten. Follow Up after subsequent NHL therapy will be carried out to assess tolerance of next anti-lymphoma therapy, development of myelodysplasia (MDS)/acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), HAMA or hypothyroidism, unexpected safety issues, and death.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: From first dose of treatment until disease progression or death, whichever came first (median follow-up for the Rituximab and Bexxar groups was 38.9 and 42.2 months, respectively) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-free survival is defined as the time from the initial date of dosing to the first documented disease progression or death. Disease assessment was based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response Criteria (IWSRC) for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). Progression is defined as at least a 50% increase in the sum of the perpendicular diameters of all measurable lesions and the appearance of new lesions at least 1.4 centimeters (cm) x 1.4 cm (i.e., 2.0 cm^2) by radiographic evaluation or greater than 1.0 cm by palpation upon physical examination.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Achieving Response [ Time Frame: Participants were followed for response at Week 7, Week 13, every 3 months for the first and second year, every 6 months for the third year, and then annually ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete response (CR) is defined as the complete disappearance of all detectable clinical and radiographic evidence of disease and the disappearance of all disease-related symptoms (by the IWSRC) if present before therapy, and normalization of those biochemical abnormalities definitely assignable to NHL. Confirmation of response was carried out by an independent reviewer.

  • Duration of Response [ Time Frame: Participants were followed for response at Week 7, Week 13, every 3 months for the first and second year, every 6 months for the third year, and then annually ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response duration is defined as the time from the first documented response (complete response, complete response unconfirmed, or partial response) until disease progression. Partial response is defined as at least a 50% decrease in the product of two perpendicular diameters of all measurable lesions; no increase in the size of other nodes, liver, or spleen; and no new disease sites. As a median duration of response is not presented for either group, see the outcome measure entitled "Number of Participants with the Indicated Duration of Response" for data regarding duration of response.

  • Number of Participants With the Indicated Duration of Response [ Time Frame: Participants were followed for response at Week 7, Week 13, every 3 months for the first and second year, every 6 months for the third year, and then annually ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The median duration of response could not be presented for participants in either treatment group; thus, data are shown as the number of participants with the indicated duration of response.

  • Time to Death [ Time Frame: From first dose of treatment until disease progression or death, whichever came first (median follow-up for the Rituximab and Bexxar groups was 38.9 and 42.2 months, respectively) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to death is defined as the time from treatment start to the date of death. As a median time to death is not presented for either treatment group, see the outcome measure entitled "Number of Participants Who Had Died by the Month Indicated" for data regarding time to death.

  • Number of Participants Who Had Died by the Month Indicated [ Time Frame: From first dose of treatment until disease progression or death, whichever came first (median follow-up for the Rituximab and Bexxar groups was 38.9 and 42.2 months, respectively) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The median time to death could not be calculated for participants in either treatment group; thus, data are shown as the number of participants who had died by the month indicated.
