Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Event Free Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Duration of time until patient experiences an event (recurrence, relapse or death)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Number of patients that have complete and very good partial responses.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Duration of time from Day 0 until death.

  • Grade > 2 toxicities [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Percent of patients experiencing one or more toxicity greater than 2.

  • Incidence of infections [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Percent of patients experiencing a definite or probable viral, fungal or bacterial infection.

  • Treatment related Mortality [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Number of patients that experience a death from causes other relapse or progression.

Enrollment: 1
