Marginal zone lymphoma, one of the indolent lymphoma, is believed to be incurable with chemotherapy. Thus the investigators need a novel agent for marginal zone lymphoma. Gemcitabine has been tried as one of salvage chemotherapy regimen and has been shown to have anti-lymphoma activity. To the investigators' knowledge, there has been no trial of gemcitabine for marginal zone lymphoma. Thus the investigators made a plan to investigate the role of gemcitabine in marginal zone lymphoma.
We designed a multi-center phase II trial of gemcitabine for advanced stage marginal zone B-cell lymphoma. Marginal zone lymphoma needs novel agent to improve clinical course by chemotherapy. Recent trials with new agents for indolent lymphoma shows promising results. Gemcitabine is known to have activity to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and has less adverse effects than other new agents. With this background gemcitabine will be tried as a single agent for advanced marginal zone lymphoma.
Gemcitabine will be administered with 1,250mg/sq.m on days 1 and 8 every 3 weeks. Response will be assessed by IWC criteria.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of gemcitabine, bendamustine, and nivolumab when given together and to see how well they work in treating patients with classic...
The purpose of this study it to evaluate efficacy of gemcitabine with cisplatin and dexamethasone in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have previously progressed on first...
This study is to explore the efficacy and safety of ChiCGB conditioning therapy in patients with high-risk Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The purpose of this study is to test any good and bad effects of the study drug, pembrolizumab, in combination with GVD in the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine and vinorelbine, use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug ...
Gemcitabine-based salvage therapy is considered an effective treatment for relapsed and refractory Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). We analyzed the outcome of 41 consecutive NHL patients treated with gem...
In the Middle East, incidence rate ratios (IRRs) of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) to Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) are more than 50% lower than the United States.
Follicular lymphoma is the most common indolent B cell lymphoma, accounting for 20% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Transformation of follicular lymphoma to a more aggressive lymphoma is a well-characte...
Chemotherapeutic agents used to treat Hodgkin lymphoma are teratogenic. Pregnancy screening before the start of chemotherapy is supported by clinical guidelines. There are limited data on pregnancy sc...
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble REED-STERNBERG CELLS of HODGKIN DISEASE or the malignant cells of CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; HODGKIN DISEASE; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; or ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA.
A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
