|Study Start Date:||July 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (interferon-alpha, thalidomide)
Patients receive interferon alfa subcutaneously every 12 hours and oral thalidomide daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Biological: recombinant interferon alfa

I. Determine the efficacy of interferon alfa and thalidomide, in terms of response rate, time to progression, and overall survival, in patients with relapsed or refractory low-grade follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
II. Determine the quantitative and qualitative toxic effects of this regimen in this patient population.
III. Correlate ancillary biological studies with clinical endpoints in these patients treated with this regimen.
Patients receive interferon alfa subcutaneously every 12 hours and oral thalidomide daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 6 months until disease progression.
