Genentech/Roche's GA101 poised to usurp Rituxan in CLL

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Genentech/Roche's novel product GA101 (obinutuzumab) is continuing its triumph over all challengers in its Phase III CLL11 study, producing significantly improved progression-free survival data over its predecessor MabThera/Rituxan (rituximab) in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). However, the extent of its victory is still unclear – news on this will await presentation of the full results, probably at the American Society of Hematology meeting in December.
