NEW YORK, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ — See video from Roche
Roche announced on October 29 that the European Commission has
approved the use of MabThera (rituximab) as a maintenance treatment
for people suffering from follicular lymphoma who have responded to
initial induction therapy. The approval of MabThera maintenance
expands effective treatment options for people with this common
type of incurable blood cancer, doubling the likelihood of them
living longer without their disease worsening. Maintenance
treatment is an important approach to blood cancer management as it
reduces the risk of relapse and the use of repeated chemotherapy,
ultimately improving the lives of follicular lymphoma patients.
Available video includes expert’s opinion on MabThera.
