|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia||Drug: Campath-1H Drug: Rituximab||Phase 2|
- To determine the efficacy and response rates of Campath-1H when given as a continuous intravenous infusion followed by subcutaneous injection plus rituximab in the treatment of chronic lymphoid disorders that are refractory to conventional therapy, have relapsed, or have no established frontline therapy.
- To assess the safety of the combination of Campath-1H when given as a continuous intravenous infusion followed by subcutaneous injection plus rituximab in chronic lymphoid disorders that express both CD52 and CD20 cell surface antigens.
- To measure levels of soluble (s) CD20 and sCD52 as well as levels of Campath-1H, rituximab and antibody complexes of rituximab/CD20 and Campath-1H/CD52 in patients with chronic lymphoid disorders treated with Campath-1H plus rituximab.

Campath 15 mg/day continuous intravenous (IV) infusion x 6 days, then twice a week for 3 weeks as 30 mg injection under skin to complete 4 week treatment course.
Rituximab 375 mg/m^2 IV infusion day 1, then 500 mg/m^2 on days 8, 15 + 22.
15 mg/day Continuous infusion by vein (IV) for 6 days then given twice a week for remaining three weeks as 30 mg injection under skin to complete one treatment course of 4 weeks.
Other Names:Drug: Rituximab

- Overall Response [ Time Frame: After each 4 week course of treatment ]Overall response categorized as 'Complete Remission,' 'Partial Remission,' or 'No Response.' Blood tests weekly while on active therapy, within 4-6 weeks following last dose of therapy, and every 3 to 6 (+/- month) thereafter as long as on study. Repeat bone marrow biopsy/aspirate with flow cytometry as applicable at the end of first course of therapy, (1 week) within 4-6 weeks following the last dose of therapy and every 6 to 12 months (+/-) thereafter as long as on study.
