Compassionate Use of Campath-1H in Treating Patients With Refractory Prolymphocytic Leukemia or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Compassionate use refers to providing a drug to a patient on humanitarian grounds before the drug has received official approval.
PURPOSE: Compassionate use of Campath-1H in treating patients who have refractory prolymphocytic leukemia or chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
