Five-year follow-up from the BRIGHT study confirmed that bendamustine plus rituximab (BR) is associated with improved progression-free survival (PFS) compared with R-CHOP or R-CVP in patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) or indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL).
Patients in the BR group were more likely to experience squamous cell carcinoma (12 vs 2) and basal cell carcinoma (9 vs 4), as well as other solid tumors (19 vs 11).
