  • Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL
  • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1500/mm3
  • Platelet count ≥ 75,000/mm3 ((except for CLL subjects with evidence of bone marrow disease, who must have a platelet count ≥ 50,000/mm3)
  • Adequate organ function defined as follows:
  • AST and ALT ≤ 2 × institutional ULN, except in the case of liver involvement ≤ 5 × ULN
  • Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × ULN, except in the case of subjects with documented Gilbert's disease ≤ 2.5 × ULN
  • Creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min as determined by the Cockcroft-Gault equation or by 24-hour urine collection for determination of creatinine clearance

  • Male subjects with partners of child-bearing potential must be surgically sterile or use a contraceptive method
  • For the expansion phase only, subjects with DLBCL, FL, and MCL only, disease must be evaluable by the International Working Group criteria (Cheson et al, 2007).

Exclusion Criteria

Any of the following excludes the subject from participation in the study:

  • Any available standard line of therapy known to be life-prolonging or life-saving
  • Any concurrent chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, biologic, or hormonal therapy for treatment of cancer
  • For CLL patients only,rapidly progressive disease that in the estimation of the investigator and sponsor would compromise ability to complete study therapy
  • History of allergy or reaction to any component of the CAT-8015 formulation
  • Receipt of any chemotherapy or small molecule targeted therapy regimens within 6 weeks
  • Receipt of any biological- or immunological-based therapies for leukemia or lymphoma within 6 weeks
  • Prior radiation therapy will not be excluded, providing the volume of bone marrow treated is less than 25%.
