Summary
Brief summary
This is a randomized, open label, phase III study to evaluate the ability of rituximab
maintenance therapy to prolong event-free survival in aggressive NHL.

Patients will be screened after successful standard induction therapy (CR or Cru following
standard R-CHOP-like therapy with 8 infusions of rituximab plus CHOP-like chemotherapy (4-8
cycles). Patients will be followed until an event occurs as defined in the protocol. To
evaluate the clinical efficacy of rituximab maintenance therapy as compared to observation in
patients with aggressive B-cell Non-Hodgkins lymphoma or follicular lymphoma grade 3b who
have achieved a complete remission after appropriate first-line therapy, measured by
event-free survival (EFS), 440 patients with DLCBL or follicular NHL grade 3 (220 per arm)
will be recruited.
