|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||CC-1088 Therapy for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: A Phase I/II Trial|
|Study Start Date:||August 1999|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2005|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the toxicity of CC-1088 in patients with refractory, progressive, B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. II. Determine the response rate to this treatment in these patients.
