Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: May 30, 2017)
  • Stage I: Trough Serum Concentrations (Ctrough) of IV and SC Rituximab [ Time Frame: Stage I: Cycle (Cy) 7 Day (D) 21 (within 2 hours predose on Cy8) of induction treatment (1 Cy=3 weeks) ]
  • Stage II: Percentage of Participants With Overall Response at the End of Induction Treatment Assessed Using International Working Group Response Criteria for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) [ Time Frame: Stage II: Baseline up to end of induction treatment Cy8 (24 weeks) (1 Cy=3 weeks) ]
    Overall Response comprised complete response (CR), CR unconfirmed (CRu), or PR. A participant was defined as a responder if they sustained a CR, CRu or PR at the end of induction treatment. Response assessment was based on clinical examination and computed tomography (CT) scans. Assessment of tumor response was performed according to the International Working Group response criteria for NHL. CR: complete disappearance of all detectable clinical and radiographic evidence of disease and disappearance of all disease-related symptoms if present before therapy; CRu: CR along with regression in lymph node mass by more than (>) 75% in the sum of the products of greatest diameters (SPD); PR: Greater than or equal to (≥) 50% decrease in SPD of 6 largest dominant nodes or nodal masses. The 95% CI was estimated for one sample binomial using Pearson-Clopper.

Brief Title  ICMJE A Study of Rituximab (MabThera) Subcutaneous (SC) Versus Rituximab (MabThera) Intravenous in Participannts With Follicular Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Official Title  ICMJE A Two-Stage Phase III, International, Multi-Center, Randomized, Controlled, Open-Label Study to Investigate the Pharmacokinetics, Efficacy and Safety of Rituximab SC in Combination With CHOP or CVP Versus Rituximab IV in Combination With CHOP or CVP in Patients With Previously Untreated Follicular Lymphoma Followed by Maintenance Treatment With Either Rituximab SC or Rituximab IV
Brief Summary This two-stage, multi-center, randomized, controlled, open-label study will investigate the pharmacokinetics, efficacy and safety of rituximab SC versus rituximab IV in participants with previously untreated follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Participants will be randomized to receive 375 milligrams per meter square (mg/m^2) rituximab as IV infusion or 1400 milligrams (mg) rituximab SC. In addition, participants will receive standard chemotherapy. Participants who achieved a complete or partial response (PR) after 8 treatment cycles, will receive maintenance treatment for a further maximum number of 12 cycles. Maintenance treatment cycles will be repeated every 8 weeks. This is a two-stage study. Stage 1 was designed to confirm the chosen rituximab SC dose resulting in comparable rituximab serum Ctrough levels compared with rituximab IV, when given as part of induction treatment every 3 weeks. Enrollment for Stage 2 started after the rituximab SC dose was established in Stage 1. Stage 2 aimed to further investigate the efficacy and safety of rituximab SC compared with rituximab IV. The anticipated time on study treatment is 96 weeks.
