  Purpose

The goal of Phase 1 of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of bendamustine, combined with fludarabine and rituximab, that can be given to patients who have CLL that has been treated before.

The goal of Phase 2 of this study is to find out if this drug combination can help to control the disease. The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.
