Abstract Text Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) comprises a clinically and biologically heterogeneous group of lymphoproliferative disorders originating in B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes, or natural killer (NK) cells. The disease course may range from indolent to aggressive. Zevalin(®) (ibritumomab tiuxetan) is a radioactive drug product, which is the combination of a β-emitting isotope, (90)Y, linked to the anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (mAb), rituximab. It has demonstrated therapeutic efficacy with durable responses and allows delivery of ionizing radiation directly to the tumor site, while minimizing toxicity to normal tissue. Ibritumomab tiuxetan is indicated for treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory low-grade, follicular NHL, including patients who are refractory to rituximab, and as consolidation therapy in previously untreated follicular NHL in patients who achieve a partial or complete response to first-line chemotherapy. Despite the efficacy and acceptable safety profile of ibritumomab tiuxetan, utilization has not been broadly adopted in practice due to a number of factors. This manuscript will review the literature available for ibritumomab tiuxetan, including several new trials that are currently being studied, and discuss the rationale for use of ibritumomab tiuxetan in NHL.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
