Roche Group's (RHHBY) Genentech said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Venclexta in combination with Gazyva for the treatment of people with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma.

Venclexta is being developed by AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) and Genentech.

The approval is based on the results of the randomized Phase III CLL14 study. Fixed 12-month treatment with Venclexta plus Gazyva significantly reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 67% compared to a current standard of care, Genentech said.
