A study to look at whether longer rituximab treatment provides additional benefit in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and whether this affects treatment safety (the MabCute study)
A Study Comparing Maintenance Subcutaneous Rituximab With Observation Only in Participants With Relapsed or Refractory Indolent Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Had Responded to Rituximab-based Immunochemotherapy Induction and 2-year Maintenance With Subcutaneous Rituximab
- Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
- United Kingdom
NCT01461928 2010-023407-95 MO25455
Clinical Trial Results
Once the last participant has completed the clinical trial, Roche will analyze the combined results of the trial and create a report summarizing the results. The analysis of the data takes time; however Roche aims to make the summary of the outcome of the clinical trial available within 12 months after the last clinical trial participant has completed the trial. Roche may also provide a summary of trial outcome prior to the end of the clinical trial. Below you can find the available results of the MO25455 (MabCute) clinical trial.

This multicenter, randomized, open-label, parallel-group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of subcutaneously administered rituximab in comparison with observation only as maintenance therapy in participants with relapsed or refractory indolent Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). All participants will receive induction therapy with rituximab (375 milligrams per square meter [mg/m^2] intravenously [IV] in Cycle 1, then 1400 mg subcutaneous [SC] every 3-4 weeks) plus standard chemotherapy for 6-8 months; followed by 24 months of maintenance I period with rituximab (1400 mg SC every 8 weeks). Participants completing therapy and showing partial or complete response will be randomized to receive either rituximab (1400 mg SC every 8 weeks) or observation with no treatment during maintenance II period and will be followed for at least 15 months. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or end of study, whichever occurs first.
A Randomized Study Comparing Maintenance Therapy With Subcutaneous Rituximab Continued Until Progression With Observation Only in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory, Indolent Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Completed and Responded to Rituximab-based Immunochemotherapy Induction and Initial 2-year Rituximab Maintenance Therapy Administered Subcutaneously
