    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the chemotherapy-free combination of ibrutinib and obinutuzumab (GA 101) in patients with previously untreated follicular lymphoma (FL) and a high tumor burden. Primary endpoint is the rate of progression free survival one year after registration. Progression-free survival (PFS) is chosen as primary endpoint since it represents besides overall survival the most relevant parameter for patients. PFS is defined as the time from registration to lymphoma progression or death from any cause.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Overall survival, complete response rate, overall response rate ORR and SD rates at end of induction, one year after start of therapy and after end of maintenance therapy, PFS (continuous observation), duration of response, 3-year-PFS, percentage of progression during induction and during maintenance therapy, percentage of progression during induction and during maintenance therapy, safety, percentage of MRD negative patients during induction therapy (midterm), after induction therapy and after maintenance therapy, duration of molecular remission for MRD negative patients after the end of induction and after end of maintenance, rate of secondary transformation to aggressive lymphoma, time to next anti-lymphoma therapy and time to next chemotherapy based treatment, percentage of secondary malignancies, time to first secondary malignancy, percentage of patients with compliance to therapy after 1, 2 and 3 years and patient-reported lymphoma symptoms and concerns as measured by FACT-Lym.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Progression-free survival (PFS) is chosen as primary endpoint for most phase III trials in FL, since it represents beside overall survival the most clinical relevant parameter for patients. PFS is in this trial defined as the time from registration to lymphoma progression or death from any cause. Since an early readout for efficacy is needed in this phase II trial, the rate of patients achieving a progression free survival of more than one year after registration (one year PFS) will be the primary endpoint of this trial. The use of this non-standard endpoint is well justified by the observation of progression free survival in former trials, showing a nearly linear shape of the Kaplan-Meier-estimates for PFS and a proportional hazard for different treatments.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    One year after registration
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - Rate of patients achieving a progression free survival of more than three years
    - Progression free survival after start of therapy (continuous observation)
    - CR, PR and SD rates after induction therapy, one year after start of therapy and after end of maintenance therapy (at 30 months after start of therapy: CR30)
    - Duration of Response
    - Percentage of progression during induction and during maintenance therapy
    - Time to treatment failure after start of therapy (failure defined by missing CR/PR or progression after CR or PR or death in remission)
    - Time to next anti-lymphoma therapy and time to next chemotherapy based treatment
    - Safety including treatment associated adverse events
    - Percentage of MRD negative patients during induction therapy (midterm), after induction therapy and after maintenance therapy
    - Duration of molecular remission for MRD negative patients after the end of induction and after end of maintenance
    - Percentage of secondary transformation to aggressive lymphoma
    - Percentage of secondary malignancies
    - Time to first secondary malignancy
    - Overall survival
    - Percentage of patients with compliance to therapy after 1, 2 and 3 years
    - patient-reported lymphoma symptoms and concerns (FACT-Lym).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The time to event parameters survival, progression free survival, time to treatment failure, time to first secondary malignancy and time to next anti-lymphoma therapy/chemotherapy will be evaluated starting at registration in this trial. If an event has not been observed at evaluation, the parameter will be censored at the last documented event-free observation.
