NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Sept. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), a global research and development-based biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the Phase 3 MURANO study of VENCLEXTA™/VENCLYXTO™ (Venetoclax) Tablets in combination with Rituxan® (rituximab) met its primary endpoint.

An independent data monitoring committee reviewed this study and made the recommendation to unblind the trial based on the positive results. Doctors will continue to monitor patients who remain active in the MURANO trial in efforts to obtain additional, longer-term safety and efficacy information.
