Clinical summary

Summary

Eligible patients will be randomised to receive zanubrutinib (a targeted therapy) OR bendamustine (chemotherapy) in combination with rituximab for the treatment of their cancer. Zanubrutinib will be administered as two 80 mg capsules by mouth twice a day; bendamustine will be administered intravenously at a dose of 90 mg/m2/day on Days 1 and 2 of Cycles 1 to 6; and rituximab will be administered intravenously at a dose of 375 mg/m2 on Day 1 of Cycles 1 to 6.
