A Phase III Multicenter, Open-label Study of Rituximab Alternative Dosing Rate in Patients With Previously Untreated Diffuse Large B-cell or Follicular Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Percentage of Patients Who Developed Grade 3 or 4 Infusion-related Reactions (IRR) Resulting From Faster Infusion of Rituximab During Days 1 and 2 of Cycle 2
The percentage of patients who developed Grade 3 or 4 IRRs resulting from faster infusion of rituximab at Cycle 2 was assessed in patients who had previously received rituximab at the standard infusion rate without experiencing a Grade 3 or 4 IRR at Cycle 1. IRRs were a predefined list of Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA) terms for infusion-related adverse events occurring on the day of and/or the day after rituximab infusion. The list of IRR terms was compiled based on IRRs observed in the present and previous studies in which rituximab was infused at the standard rate.
Days 1 and 2 of Cycle 2
