Prima primary rituximab and maintenance
PRIMA :Primary Rituximab and Maintenance

  • No standard first line chemotherapy in follicular lymphoma

  • Rituximab when combined with chemotherapy (CVP, CHOP, CHVP+IFN, MCP, FCM…) does improve CR rate end EFS

  • Rituximab maintenance improves EFS in rituximab (alone) or chemo (CVP alone) treated patients

  • Primary objective : To evaluate in patients with advanced follicular lymphoma the benefit of maintenance therapy with rituximab after induction of response with chemotherapy plus rituximab in comparison with no maintenance therapy

Prima scientific design of the study
PRIMAScientific design of the study

  • The primary efficacy parameter is event-free survival. Event-free survival will be measured from the day of randomization to the date of first documented disease progression, death by any cause or institution of new treatment. Responding patients and patients who are lost to follow up will be censored at their last tumor assessment date.


Prima scientific design of the study1
PRIMAScientific design of the study

  • New anti-lymphoma treatment is defined :

    • as the institution of any radiation therapy (even focal) or chemotherapy or immunotherapy, alone or in any combination of them, which is instituted for lymphoma treatment.

  • Any new anti-lymphoma treatment not planed in the protocol will be considered as an event.

  • Known HIV infection or active HBV or HCV infection

  • Serious underlying medical conditions, which could impair the ability of the patient to participate in the trial (e.g. ongoing infection, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, gastric ulcers, active autoimmune disease). Judgment is up to the investigator

Prima induction treatment 1
PRIMAInduction treatment (1)

  • Induction of response with

    8 x rituximab combined

    • with 8 cycles of CVP every 21 days

    • or 6 cycles of CHOP in 21-day cycles

    • or 6 cycles of FCM in 28-day cycles

    • or 6 cycles of MCP in 28-day cycles.


Prima induction treatment 2
PRIMAInduction treatment (2)

  • After registration induction therapy has to be started within 7 days from registration

  • The assignment to one of the four chemotherapy groups (R-CVP, R-CHOP, R-FCM and R-MCP) is on a per centre decision. Every centre has to decide upfront (before initiation of the study) which chemotherapy schedule is standard of care for follicular lymphoma patients in that center and therefore will be given to all patients of that center throughout the study (information will be reported on registration form)

  • In France, only R-CVP and R-CHOP will be considered as standard. In Germany, the regimen will be allocated to each patient through randomization (OSHO/GLSG procedure).

  • Each Investigator has to answer on the Query Form, sign and date it (print name) and keep a copy in the CRF

  • Original forms must be :

    1/ faxed to GELARC

    2/ sent with CRF pages after monitoring


Serious adverse event

For the french GELA reviewing panel : N. Brousse, F. Charlotte, B. Fabiani


Aims of the pathology review process
Aims of the Pathology Review Process 

  • 1) to confirm the diagnosis of follicular lymphoma

    • appropriate panel of antbodies (CD20, CD5, Bcl-6, Bcl2)

    • To classify it according to the WHO grading (2001),

  • 2) store a block of the tumoral sample

    • Tissue-Micro-Array of follicular lymphoma specimens

    • To evaluate the relevance of the expression of prognostic markers in the response to therapy and outcome.
