             have had a minimum of stable disease for 4 months.

          -  Measurable disease defined as at least one malignant lesion that can be accurately and
             serially measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded) using
             conventional methods (CT, MRI, x-ray, PE) (diameter > 20 mm) or spiral CT (diameter >
             10 mm).

             indicated is allowed as long as it is not evidence of progressive disease and is not
             required to be measured as a target lesion per RECIST Biological response modifiers,
             such as G-CSF, within 3 week prior to study entry. (G-CSF and other hematopoietic
             growth factors may be used in the management of acute toxicity such as febrile
