Wolfgang Hiddemann, MD, PhD
Wolfgang Hiddemann, MD, PhD, director of the Department of Hematology and Oncology, University of Munich, discusses the updated results of an immunochemotherapy study in follicular lymphoma.
Updated results of this international trial comparing obinutuzumab (Gazyva) and rituximab (Rituxan) in patients with previously untreated patients with follicular lymphoma were presented at the 2017 European Hematology Association Congress.
These updates confirmed that the obinutuzumab combination had significantly higher progression-free survival compared with rituximab. The different chemotherapy backbones were also discussed in further detail, says Hiddemann.
