Summary of major inclusion and exclusion criteria. Other Safety criteria will need to be met.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed, relapsed or refractory CD20+ follicular B-cell NHL within 12 months of Study Day 1 (without clinical evidence of transformation). NHL must require treatment as determined by an increase in overall tumor size. The presence of B symptoms, and/or the presence of masses which are causing ongoing clinical symptoms.
  • Bidimensionally measurable disease meeting the minimum requirement of at least 1 lesion >/= 2.0 cm in a single dimension.
  • No lymphoma therapy for 3 weeks prior to Study Day 1.
  • Patients must be recovered from all toxicities associated with prior surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or immunotherapy.
  • Signed IRB-approved informed consent.
  • Greater than 18 years of age.
  • Expected survival >/= 3 months.
  • WHO performance status of </= 2.
  • Acceptable hematologic status, liver function, renal function, and pulmonary function.
  • Female patients who are not pregnant or lactating.
  • Men and women of reproductive potential who are following accepted birth control methods.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with impaired bone marrow reserve, which may be indicated by prior myeloablative therapy with autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) or peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) rescue.
  • Prior radioimmunotherapy, including the Zevalin regimen.
  • Prior immunotherapy, including Rituxan therapy within 6 months of Study Day 1.
  • Rituxan-refractory (no response to most recent Rituxan-containing regimen, or TTP was < 6 months).
  • Presence of CNS lymphoma.
  • Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
  • Known history of HIV or AIDS.
  • Serious nonmalignant disease or infection
  • Major surgery, other than diagnostic surgery, within 4 weeks of Study Day 1.
  • Patients who received investigational product within 4 weeks of Study Day 1 or patients who may experience long-term toxicity from a previous investigational therapy.
