Status and phase

Phase 1


Lymphoma, Follicular
Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin


Drug: Aurixim

Study type


Funder types




Details and patient eligibility


This is an open-label study of safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Auriхim multiple doses in patients with recurrent/ refractory В-cell, CD20-positive non-Hodgkin lymphoma of low tumor grade or with follicular lymphoma, as well as in patients non-treated before for В-cell, CD20-positive non-Hodgkin lymphoma of low tumor grade.

The study will be carried out in 4-6 Russian and Belarussian sites. The study will be consisted of screening period, induction (obligatory) phase and supporting (non-obligatory) phase of the investigational therapy and post-treatment follow-up period.

  13. History of other malignancies with the exception of cervical carcinoma in situ or skin basal-cell carcinoma, that had undergone surgical removal and treatment within ≥ 5 years before screening

  14. Uncontrolled concomitant diseases and conditions, including mental or social, which, in the Investigator's opinion, may prevent the patient from participation in the study.
