Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well everolimus works in treating older patients with mantle cell lymphoma who received previous first-line or second-line chemotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma Drug: everolimus Phase 2

Detailed Description:



  • Determine the progression-free survival of older patients with mantle cell lymphoma receiving everolimus and who were previously treated with first- or second-line chemotherapy.


  • Determine the toxicity and feasibility of treatment with this drug.
  • Determine the efficacy of this drug in these patients.
  • Compare the duration of remission after first- vs second-line chemotherapy.
  • Determine the rate of objective remission.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral everolimus once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed periodically for 3 years.
