This open-label, multicenter, randomized study will compare the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of RO5072759 (GA101) 1000 mg versus 2000 mg in patients with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The randomization scheme will ensure approximately equal sample sizes in the two treatment dose arms for the following stratification factors: 1) tumor burden at baseline (high or low); and 2) Rai stage at baseline (study entry; I/II or III/IV). Tumor burden will be assessed on the basis of the presence or absence of at least one nodal mass >/= 5 cm in the baseline computed tomography (CT) scan. Patients will be randomized to receive a maximum of 8 cycles of GA101 (1000mg iv infusion, on days 1, 8 and 15 of cycle 1 and day 1 of cycles 2 - 6) on 21 day cycles or maximum of 8 cycles of GA101 (2000mg iv infusion, on days 1, 8 and 15 of cycle 1 and day 1 of cycles 2 - 6) on 21 day cycles.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response rate (complete response/complete response with incomplete marrow recovery/partial response), assessments according to International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (IWCLL) guidelines [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival, defined as the time from the randomization to the first occurrence of progression or death, whichever occurs first [ Time Frame: up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of response, defined as the first occurrence of a documented, objective response until the first occurrence of relapse or progression or death from any cause [ Time Frame: up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival, defined as the time from randomization until death from any cause [ Time Frame: up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Nature of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetic parameters derived from plasma concentration-time profiles of GA101 following administration [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacodynamics: Peripheral blood B-cell depletion and recovery [ Time Frame: Up to Day 141 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
