  Purpose

This is a randomized, open-label, active-control, multicenter Phase 2 study of VELCADE+fludarabine in comparison with rituximab+fludarabine in subjects with relapsed advanced follicular lymphoma. Eligible subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio between the 2 treatment arms (55 subjects per arm).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 8 cycles (1 cycle is 35 days: 280 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of response-evaluable subjects who achieved a confirmed complete response (CR) or complete response unconfirmed (CRu). Disease response and progression were evaluated according to modified International Workshop Response Criteria (IWRC) criteria by radiographic imaging and other procedures as necessary.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 8 cycles (1 cycle is 35 days: 280 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of subjects who achieve CR, CRu, or partial response (PR) relative to the response evaluable population. Disease response and progression were evaluated according to the modified IWRC criteria by radiographic imaging and other procedures as necessary.
