Obinutuzumab injection is used together with other medicines (eg, chlorambucil) to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

It is also used to treat patients who previously had untreated stage II bulky, III or IV follicular lymphoma and are at least having partial temporary recovery (remission) from their cancer. It interferes with the growth of cancer cells, which are eventually destroyed by the body. Obinutuzumab is an antineoplastic agent (cancer medicine).
