  2. Massive (ie, at least 6 cm below the left costal margin) or progressive or symptomatic splenomegaly
  3. Massive nodes (ie, at least 10 cm in longest diameter) or progressive or symptomatic lymphadenopathy
  4. Progressive lymphocytosis with an increase of more than 50% over a 2-month period or lymphocyte doubling time (LDT) of less than 6 months.
  5. Constitutional symptoms, defined as any one or more of the following disease-related symptoms or signs:
  6. Unintentional weight loss of 10% or more within the previous 6 months;
  7. Significant fatigue (ie, ECOG PS 2 or worse; inability to work or perform usual activities);
  8. Fevers higher than 100.5F or 38.0C for 2 or more weeks without other evidence of infection; or
  9. Night sweats for more than 1 month without evidence of infection.
  10. Patients who have resistant disease after primary treatment
  11. Patients who have a short time to progression after the first treatment (less than 2 years)
