One case of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), a rare brain infection resulting in death or causing severe disability, and one case of tumor lysis syndrome were reported.(5,6) These data were presented at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in December 2008.

"The clues we're seeing from ofatumumab also suggest possible activity in other oncology settings, which we're currently evaluating through several clinical trials."

GSK and Genmab will conduct additional studies of ofatumumab in CLL and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) settings. In CLL, a Phase III front-line study is evaluating ofatumumab combined with chlorambucil in patients with previously untreated CLL.
