- Life expectancy not severely limited by other illness

- Creatinine clearance = 30 mL/min

- Not pregnant or nursing

- Negative pregnancy test

- Fertile patients must use effective contraception during study therapy

- No known serological positivity for HBV, HCV, or HIV

- No concurrent uncontrolled serious medical conditions

- No severe impairment of renal or liver function (alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin or
creatinine > 2.5 times upper limit of normal) not related to lymphoma

- No known hypersensitivity to murine proteins

- No prior malignancy in the past 5 years, except for nonmelanoma skin tumor or
curatively resected carcinoma in situ of the uterine cervix
