  • Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Bendamustine
Dose of 120 mg/m2/day on Day 1 and Day 2 of each treatment cycle (every 21 days), to a maximum of 8 cycles.
Drug: Bendamustine
for injection

Detailed Description:
This is multicenter, open label study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of bendamustine HCl in patients with indolent Non-hodgkin's lymphoma and relapsed after rituximab treatment. This injection will be given through i.v. infusion in >= 60 minutes on days 1 and 2 of every 21-day treatment cycle. Patients will be treated for up to 8 cycles unless progressive disease or unacceptable toxicity take place. Patients will be followed for up to 1 year before evaluating progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).
