Abstract: [First paragraph] Obinutuzumab, an afucosylated, type 2 anti-CD20 antibody, showed superior results to rituximab in a head-to-head comparison in combination with chlorambucil in the first-line treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients with comorbidities in the CLL11 trial (NCT01010061).1 Enhanced activity of obinutuzumab in this setting may reflect better binding to Fc receptors as well as the direct activation of the lysosomal cell death pathway mediated by type 2 CD20 antibodies
