A Study of Tremelimumab Combined With the Anti-PD-L1 MEDI4736 Antibody in Malignant Mesothelioma (NIBIT-MESO-1)

The prognosis of malignant mesothelioma (MM) patients remains dismal and effective treatment represents a high un-met medical need. Investigators have recently reported promising clinical activity of the anti-CTLA-4 mAb tremelimumab in pre-treated MM patients: disease control rate (DCR) was 31%, and survival rate at 1- and 2-years were 48.3% and ...


Trial of Pazopanib in Patients With Solitary Fibrous Tumor and Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma

To estimate the sample size for stratum 1 (SFT), a Simon's optimal 2-stage phase II design has been used, having considered the published response rate based on Choi criteria in SFT patients which correspond to 40% in monotherapy. For a design with P0=0.40, P1=0.60; =0.1 and =0.1. At the first ...


uPAR-PET for Prognostication in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma and Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Lung

Study I: uPAR PET/CT with 68Ga-NOTA-AE105 will be evaluated as a prognostic tool in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (stage IV (Ia) operable disease (Ib)) by observer-blinded readings and compared to the prognostic performance of FDG PET/CT and prognostic biomarkers as uPAR. Furthermore, uPAR PET/CT will be evaluated ...


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 ...


Surgery Plus Intraoperative Peritoneal Hyperthermic Chemotherapy (IPHC) to Treat Peritoneal Carcinomatosis

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: - Histologically confirmed peritoneal carcinomatosis with the following histologies: - Primary peritoneal mesothelioma - Adenocarcinoma of gastrointestinal tract origin - Confined to peritoneal cavity - Tumor mass could be debulked to less than 2.5 cm in diameter per tumor deposit - Must not have failed prior intraperitoneal platinum ...


An Efficacy Study of Milataxel (TL139) Administered Orally for Malignant Mesothelioma

This is a non-randomized, multicenter, open label, single agent phase II study. Patients with malignant mesothelioma that has recurred or progressed following chemotherapy, and who qualify for this study, will receive milataxel 60 mg/m2 orally on Day 1 of a 21 day cycle. If no toxicities of greater than Grade ...


Screening of Alberta Asbestos Exposed Workers for Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma

In Canada, lung cancer is the primary cause of cancer mortality above the next three culprits combined (breast, colon and prostate cancer). Cigarette smoking is the most important risk factor in the development of lung cancer. Another population of particular interest in Alberta involves workers with occupational exposure to asbestos ...


Phase II Trial of Radical Pleurectomy With or Without Intraoperative PDT for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

A randomized Phase II trial to test whether the addition of intraoperative Photofrin-mediated photodynamic therapy to radical pleurectomy and post-operative chemo.improves OS in the treatment of patients with epithelioid MPM. Subjects assigned to the PDT arm will be given the photosensitizer prior to surgery . All subjects will receive maximal ...


MEDI4736 Or MEDI4736 + Tremelimumab In Surgically Resectable Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Subjects with MPM will undergo surgical mediastinal lymph node biopsy (cervical mediastinoscopy) and simultaneous surgical biopsy of the pleural tumor by thoracoscopy, at which time tumor tissue (at least 2 g) and peripheral blood will be collected for the study. These procedures are performed as standard of care in the ...


Transarterial Chemoperfusion: Cisplatin Methotrexate Gemcitabine for Unresectable Pleural Mesothelioma

This is an open-label, single arm, phase 2 study with a lead in safety cohort to evaluate the safety and efficacy of transarterial chemoperfusion treatment with cisplatin (35 mg/m2^), methotrexate (100 mg/m^2) and gemcitabine (1000 mg/m^2) in patients with unresectable MPM. During the lead in phase of the study, 3 ...
