- Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of oxaliplatin in combination with fludarabine, Ara-C and rituximab in patients with Richter's transformation, prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL), or refractory/relapsed B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
- Assess the complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) rate to combination therapy of oxaliplatin, fludarabine, Ara-C and rituximab in patients with Richter's transformation, PLL or refractory/relapsed B-cell CLL.
- Determine the safety and toxicity profile of combination therapy of oxaliplatin, fludarabine, Ara-C and rituximab in patients with Richter's transformation, PLL or refractory/relapsed B-cell CLL.
- Determine the duration of response, failure-free survival, and overall survival.
- Determine the incidence of infections (bacterial, fungal, and viral) in patients with Richter's transformation, prolymphocytic leukemia or refractory/relapsed B-cell CLL treated with rituximab, oxaliplatin, fludarabine and Ara-C; monitor immune parameters such as T cell counts and immunoglobulin levels; and monitor Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) status.
- Characterize the pharmacodynamics of oxaliplatin in leukemia cells with respect to total adduct formation, cross-link formation and excision deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) responses. Compare these parameters in cells from the same patient after treatment with oxaliplatin in combination with fludarabine and Ara-C.

Experimental: Oxaliplatin, Fludarabine, Cytarabine + Rituximab
Starting dose oxaliplatin 17.5mg/m^2/day intravenous (IV) for 4 days; Fludarabine 30 mg/m^2 IV and Cytarabine 1 g/m^2 IV for two days, + Rituximab 375 mg/m^2 IV on Day 3, Cycle 1 then Day 1 following cycles.
1 g/m^2 given IV for two days (Days 2 and 3).
30 mg/m^2 given IV for two days (Days 2 and 3).
Starting dose of 17.5 mg/m^2 IV for 4 days (Days 1 through 4).
Other Name: Eloxatin
375 mg/m^2 IV on Day 3 of the first cycle over 4-6 hours and on Day 1 on every cycle following.
Other Name: Rituxan
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) Oxaliplatin [ Time Frame: From treatment onset to end of each cycle of treatment (every 21 days) ]MTD defined as dose level at which 2/3 or 2/6 participants experience Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT), where DLTs are any oxaliplatin-related ≥Grade 3 non-hematological toxicity involving a major organ system (brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung) in the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Version 3.0 toxicity scale.
- Number of Participants With a Complete Response or Partial Response [ Time Frame: Evaluation every 3 cycles of treatment (28 days per cycle), approximately 90 days ]According to International Workshop Response Criteria for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas: Complete remission (CR) defined as > 30% lymphocytes in the bone marrow, recovery of blood counts and no clinical symptoms; and Partial remission (PR) defined as > 50% decrease of clinical symptoms from baseline and recovery from blood counts.
