Plain English Summary

Background and study aims
The most common B cell sub-type is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), accounting for 30% of B-cell NHL. Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common type of leukaemia in adults. The rise in DLBCL and CLL incidence and mortality has been observed worldwide including India.

DLBCL is an aggressive lymphoma with an expected survival of less than 1 year if untreated and advances quickly, requiring immediate treatment. The current standard-of-care (SoC) for DLBCL is a combination of cyclophosphamide, hydroxydoxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone (CHOP) chemotherapy and rituximab, the latter being a chimeric monoclonal antibody against the CD20 B-cell antigen. This regimen is also known as R-CHOP (rituximab + CHOP).
CLL is slow-progressing and often goes untreated in the early stages. In intermediate stages of CLL, treatment typically consists of chemotherapy (fludarabine and cyclophosphamide [FC]) alone or in combination with rituximab (R-FC).
The aim is to conduct Reditux™ Registry study to observe Effectiveness and Safety, of Reditux™ and the Reference Medicinal Product to Treat Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia(CLL) in Routine Clinical Practice.

Who can participate?
Patients aged 18 and over with DLBCL or CLL requiring immediate treatment

What does the study involve?
After collection of the data, we will analyze such data by valid scientific methods. This will, in turn, help us to understand how effective and safe the drug is. By participating in this study you will contribute to the better understanding and knowledge of the use of this medicine and thus benefit the patients in future for effective, safe, quality of life and economic use of this medicine.

What are the possible benefits and risks of participating?
You will not be exposed to any kind of risk or discomfort due to this study. Foreseeable risks and discomforts remain the same as mentioned in the information leaflet given with Reditux™, MabThera®, or Ristova®. By being part of this study, you will not receive any additional benefits apart from the ones associated with the use of Reditux™, MabThera®, or Ristova®.

Where is the study run from?
Approximately 60 clinical study sites, across India.

When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for?
Mar 2015 to April 2022

Who is funding the study?
Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd., Hyderabad, India.

Study information

Scientific title

An observational study to collect data of real-world experience in India with Reditux™ or RMP to observe clinical effectiveness and safety in DLBCL and CLL patients



Study hypothesis

A proposed a non-interventional study (NIS) which aims to collect data reflecting the real-world experience in India with Reditux™ (biosimilar rituximab) and RMP rituximab in the post-approval setting to expand their understanding of its effectiveness and safety in DLBCL and CLL patients.

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia


The study will enroll patients who recently started treatment with Reditux™ or the RMP for previously untreated DLBCL or CLL in routine clinical practice. All treatment decisions (Reditux, Ristova & MabThera) will have already been made by the patient’s physician by the time the patient provides consent for the study. Patients meeting eligibility criteria will be enrolled and each patient will ideally be observed and followed for a minimum of 2 years & Maximum of 3 years after the first dose of Treatment (Rituximab).

The study involves data collection twice in a year at 6 monthly intervals (Jan – Jun and Jul – Dec format). During those data collection time points, patient information pertaining to the previous 6- month interval of visits to the doctor and other important information will be collected as indicated in the eCRFs.
