Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients or their parents (guardian) must sign an informed consent indicating that they are aware of the investigational nature of the study, using commercially available drugs.
  • Patients must have recovered from the toxic effects of prior therapy before entering this study or at least 2 weeks should have elapsed since the end of last course of chemotherapy.
  • Patients must have adequate liver function (bilirubin _< 2.0 mg/dl, SGOT less than 1.5 times normal (unless it is due to disease), adequate renal function (creatinine <_ 1.5 mg/dl, creatinine clearance >_ 60 ml/min/1.73 m2) and normal electrolytes.
  • Patients should have a granulocyte count > 500/uL and a platelet count >_ 100,000/uL (unless due to disease involvement of the bone marrow).
