Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate defined as partial and complete responses. For CLL this will be defined using the NCI-WG Response Criteria for CLL and for SLL using the IWG revised response criteria for malignant lymphoma [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • complete response rate assessed by standard response criteria (NCI-WG Response Criteria for CLL and IWG revised response criteria for malignant lymphoma for SLL) [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival in months [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Toxicity types, frequency and relationship to study drugs according to CTCAE version 3.0 [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
