SCCA Lymphoma Clinical Trials

GA101 for non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (2388)
An open-label, multicenter, randomized, Phase III study to investigate the efficacy and safety of bendamustine compared with bendamustine + GA101, a monoclonal anti-CD20 antibody (also known as obinutuzumab or RO5072759), in patients with rituximab-refractory, indolent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
