“It is encouraging to see new data supporting a potential rituximab Biosimilar. If approved this may help provide a more cost-effective treatment option and expand access for patients and physicians,” said Dr. Jeff Sharman, medical director, US Oncology Hematology Research. “The data presented today will help us understand the nuances of the medicine without the confounding influence of additional concurrent treatments.”

ORR is defined as the percentage of patients achieving complete response (CR) or partial response (PR), based on central review. Additionally, estimated rates of one-year progression-free survival were similar across groups (76.4% vs. 81.2% in the PF-05280586 and MabThera groups, respectively).1 The results also show that PF-05280586 had a similar safety profile to MabThera.1
