- Patients must have a life expectancy of > 3 months.
- If patients have undergone recent surgery, they must have fully recovered from the
effects of that surgery prior to enrollment.
- Patients must have a pretreatment leukocyte count > 3,000/l, absolute neutrophil
count >1500/l, hemoglobin >8 mg/dl, and platelet count of > 150,000/l within 2 weeks
- Patients must have adequate renal function, as documented by a serum creatinine < 2.0
mg/dl, and have adequate hepatic function, as documented by a serum bilirubin < 1.1
mg/dl within 2 weeks of enrollment.
- Patients must not have active infection.
- Patients must have no serious medical or psychiatric illness, other than that treated
by this study, which would limit the ability of the patient to receive protocol
