RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of CC-1088 in treating patients who have chronic lymphocytic leukemia that has not responded to previous therapy.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: CC-1088
Phase 1
Phase 2

Primary Completion Date: July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

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.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral CC-1088 three times a day for 28 days. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 11-20 patients will be accrued for this study.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
