Gemcitabine in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed, Relapsed, or Chemotherapy-Resistant Mantle Cell Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well gemcitabine works in treating patients with newly diagnosed, relapsed, or chemotherapy-resistant mantle cell lymphoma.

- Determine the efficacy of gemcitabine, in terms of objective response and tolerability, in patients with newly diagnosed, relapsed, or chemotherapy-resistant mantle cell lymphoma.
- Determine the time to progression and time to treatment failure in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the response duration in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the adverse reactions in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for up to 9 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 1 year, and then annually for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10-29 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
