The FDA has granted a priority review to a supplemental biologics license application (sBLA) for obinutuzumab (Gazyva) in combination with chemotherapy, followed by obinutuzumab alone, for the first-line treatment of patients with follicular lymphoma, according to Genentech, the manufacturer of the therapy.

The FDA previously approved obinutuzumab for use in combination with bendamustine for patients with follicular lymphoma who have received prior therapy.
