Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Part 1
Cohort 1- Genasense will be administered as a 2-hour intravenous infusion once weekly for 3 weeks at a dose of 300 mg to the first subject enrolled and, in the absence of dose-limiting toxicity, in increasing increments of 100 mg to each successive subject enrolled to a maximum dose of 1000 mg.

  • Oblimersen
  • Oblimersen sodium
  • Genasense
  • G3139
  • Bcl-2 antisense oligonucleotide
Experimental: Part 2
Genasense will be administered as a 2-hour intravenous infusion twice weekly for 3 weeks at a dose established based on Part 1 of the study.
Drug: Oblimersen (Genasense)
Intravenous
