Study of FAK (Defactinib) and PD-1 (Pembrolizumab) Inhibition in Advanced Solid Malignancies (FAK-PD1)

Programmed cell death receptor 1 (PD-1) blockade is a well-tolerated novel cancer immunotherapy with monotherapy response rates of 20-50% in tumour types such as bladder, melanoma, renal and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), along with durable benefit. However, other tumour types (such as pancreatic cancer) have been poorly responsive and ...

Pembrolizumab in Patients With Advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects a new drug, pembrolizumab has on this type of cancer and if it can offer better results than standard pemetrexed and platinum-based chemotherapy alone. This study will also look at side effects and how the treatments impact quality of ...

Phase II MEDI4736 in Combination With Chemotherapy for First-Line Treatment of Unresectable Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor of the mesothelial surfaces primarily arising in the thoracic pleura and is estimated to cause 43,000 deaths worldwide each year with over 3300 cases occurring annually in the United States. Approximately 80% of cases of mesothelioma are due to inflammation induced by prior asbestos exposure ...

Phase

Trimodal Lung-Sparing Treatment of Pleural Mesothelioma

Current surgical and/or chemotherapeutic approaches for malignant pleural mesothelioma are unsatisfactory and have not been shown to significantly prolong survival, and often lead to worsened pulmonary function and quality of life. We will investigate whether a prospective trial of trimodal (surgery, pleural chemotherapy, and pleural radiation) therapy can improve the ...

Phase

Mesothelin and Osteopontin as Diagnostic Markers in Patients With Mesothelioma or Atypical Mesothelial Hyperplasia

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine if mesothelin and osteopontin in serum can serve as early markers of malignant transformation into mesothelioma. Secondary - Determine if there are cytological, histological, immunohistochemical, and molecular markers of precancerous disease in tissue samples. - Determine if SV40 has a carcinogenic role. - Determine the relationship ...
