I. To determine the objective response rates for the combination of triapine and gemcitabine in patients with primary tumors of the biliary ducts and gall bladder.
II. To assess the toxicities and recovery from toxicities for patients with biliary duct and gall bladder tumors treated with the combination of triapine and gemcitabine.
III. To determine the survival and progression free survival of patients with biliary and gall bladder tumors treated with the combination of triapine and gemcitabine.
OUTLINE: This is a non-randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to bilirubin levels (normal vs abnormal).
Patients receive 3-AP (Triapine) IV over 4 hours followed by gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving a complete response (CR) receive 1 additional course beyond CR.
Patients are followed every 3 months for up to 2 years.

Other Names:Drug: gemcitabine
- Response Rate According to RECIST Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]Tumor response was assessed every eight weeks by CT scan using RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors) criteria. Per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions: Complete Response (CR), Disapperance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >= 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall response (OR) = CR+PR.
- Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]PFS will be measured from the time of the patient's initial best response (PR or CR) until documented progression.
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
