Reporting Groups

Cyclosporine doses will be based on actual body weight unless actual body weight is > 15 kg higher than the ideal body weight. Cyclosporine dose will be adjusted to maintain a trough whole blood level of 250-450 ng/mL during the high dose period (weeks 1 -6) and 150-250 ng/mL during the maintenance period (weeks 7-36) in the absence of renal toxicity.

High dose cyclosporine weeks 1-6, then maintenance dose cyclosporine weeks 7-36. If CR, PR, or SD at week 36 evaluation, treatment is complete. If progression occurs during weeks 7-36, patients will re-register to Step 2 at time of PD and begin high dose therapy (weeks 1-6), followed by maintenance therapy (weeks 7-36). At second progression patients will end protocol treatment.
