By using the GRADE system we produced the following recommendations for the use of bendamustine in the first-line treatment of CLL: (1) bendamustine with rituximab is recommended in elderly fit patients potentially eligible to FCR; (2) Bendamustine alone is recommended in patients who are candidate to chlorambucil alone; (3) Rituximab-bendamustine is recommended in patients not eligible to FCR, but suitable to receive rituximab. Consensus-based recommendations addressed evidence-orphan issues concerning the use of bendamustine in genetically-defined high-risk patients and the appropriate dose of bendamustine as single agent or in association with rituximab.

Abstract

By using the GRADE system we produced the following recommendations for the use of bendamustine in the first-line treatment of CLL: (1) bendamustine with rituximab is recommended in elderly fit patients potentially eligible to FCR; (2) Bendamustine alone is recommended in patients who are candidate to chlorambucil alone; (3) Rituximab-bendamustine is recommended in patients not eligible to FCR, but suitable to receive rituximab. Consensus-based recommendations addressed evidence-orphan issues concerning the use of bendamustine in genetically-defined high-risk patients and the appropriate dose of bendamustine as single agent or in association with rituximab.
