|Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma||Drug: dasatinib Drug: Rituximab Drug: fludarabine||Phase 2|
- Since the purpose of the study is to determine the response rate of the 3 drug regimen, everyone who participates will receive the same dose of the study drug, dasatinib and the 2 standard drugs, fludarabine and rituximab.
- Participants will receive the drugs dasatinib, fludarabine, and rituximab at the following time points through each cycle of treatment. A cycle of study treatment is 28 days. Dasatinib pills will be taken orally each day for the first 2 weeks of each cycle. Fludarabine will be give intravenously on three days of each cycle (Days 3-5 in the first cycle, days 1-3 after that). Rituximab will be given intravenously with a total dose of 375 mg/m2 each cycle (split on Days 3+4 in the first cycle and at the discretion of the treating physician after that on Days 1-3).
- The following procedures will be repeated throughout the study: medical history review; physical exam; performance status test; blood tests and EKG. They will occur daily during the first week of treatment, then weekly for the rest of cycle 1. After cycle 1 these procedures will be done once a week for 4 weeks then once a month for 6 months.
- Tumor assessments will be repeated once every 2 months for the first six months of the study, and then once every 6 months after that.
- Blood samples will be obtained in the first 5 days of treatment for pharmacokinetic studies and pharmacodynamic studies.
- Participants that are benefiting from the study treatment after the first cycle can continue to receive an additional 6 cycles of study treatment.

dasatinib, rituximab, fludarabine
Taken orally once a day on days 1-14 of each 28-day cycle
Given intravenously, 375 mg/m2 each cycle (dose split, given on Days 3+4 of cycle 1, variable after that).
Given intravenously, 25 mg/m2/day, for 3 doses per cycle (Days 3-5 in cycle 1, Days 1-3 after that)
- Response Rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To describe the response rate of complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) to treatment with this drug combination (SD=stable disease, PD=progressive disease)
- Progression-Free and Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To describe the progression-free and overall surivial
- Toxicities [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Dasatinib may enhance the myelosuppression expected from fludarabine. This toxicity will be monitored with frequent CBC's. If after Day 21 of a cycle there is a grade 4 cytopenia, a dose reduction will occur in the next cycle of treatment, and that cycle cannot start until the ANC > 1,000 and the platelets > 25,000. There is also a risk for pleural effusions with dasatinib, but the risk will be low, since there is a break from dasatinib dosing on days 15-28 of each cycle. Nevertheless, if a grade 2 pleural effusion occurs, there will be a dose reduction in the next cycle of treatment.
