Lymphoma/Leukemia (CLL/SLL): A Study Comparing BGB-3111 With Bendamustine Plus Rituximab in Patients With Previously Untreated CLL or SLL

Research Question:
What are the good and bad effects of the experimental drug BGB-3111, versus a known standard treatment called bendamustine plus rituximab (B+R) on you and your chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL)?

Basic Study Information

If you decide to participate in this study; as part of the screening tests for the study, your blood will be tested to determine whether you have CLL/SLL that has a mutation (a change) in one of the chromosomes called ‘17p deletion’. If you have CLL/SLL that does not have the 17p deletion, you will be in Cohort 1 and will be randomly assigned by a computer program to one of the following treatment groups in Cohort 1: BGB-3111 or B+R. When you are “randomly assigned” it means you are put into a group by chance, like flipping a coin. Neither you nor your study doctor may choose the treatment you will take. You will have an equal chance of receiving either treatment in Cohort 1. If your CLL/SLL has the 17p deletion, you will be assigned to Cohort 2 and will receive BGB-3111.
