Everolimus in Treating Older Patients With Mantle Cell Lymphoma Previously Treated With First-Line or Second-Line Chemotherapy
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.

|Study Start Date:||May 2008|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||September 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- 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.
