Last verified: June 2013
The goal of this clinical research study is to see if low intensity chemotherapy given together with the new drug 90Y Zevalin, followed by a transplant of blood or marrow stem cells from a donor can increase the length of remission in patients with leukemia and lymphoma. The safety of this treatment will also be studied.

Condition Intervention Phase
Lymphoma Leukemia Drug: Zevalin Radioimmunotherapy Drug: Rituximab Drug: Fludarabine Drug: Cyclophosphamide Procedure: Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
