Study results revealed that bendamustine and rituximab combination therapy significantly improved progression-free survival and complete remission rates while showing less toxicity as compared with the current standard treatment. The median progression-free survival for bendamustine and rituximab combination therapy was 54.8 months compared with 34.8 months for CHOP and rituximab combination therapy. The complete remission rate of 40.1 percent for bendamustine and rituximab combination therapy was significantly higher than the 30.8 percent achieved with CHOP and rituximab combination therapy. As predicted, a higher frequency of serious adverse events was seen with the CHOP and rituximab combination therapy, such as neutropenia (10.7 percent versus 46.5 percent) and leukocytopenia (12.1 percent versus 38.2 percent). The bendamustine and rituximab combination therapy was better tolerated by patients as evidenced by lower rates of treatment side effects such as hair loss (15 percent versus 62 percent), infectious complications (95 versus 121 patients), nerve damage (18 versus 73 patients), and episodes of inflammation in the mucous lining of the mouth (16 versus 47 patients).

"While the CHOP and rituximab combination is the current standard of care, it is frequently associated with serious adverse events and more side effects, as was further shown in this study," said lead author Mathias J. Rummel, M.D., Ph.D., Head of the Department for Hematology at the University Hospital in Giessen, Germany. "These promising results suggest that the combination of bendamustine and rituximab has the potential to become the new standard, first-line treatment option for patients with these non-Hodgkin lymphoma entities."

Dr. Rummel will present this study on Monday, December 7, at 11:00 a.m. in Room 208-210.
