Mesothelioma Clinical Trials

A mesothelioma diagnosis is a serious one, but it is not one without hope. There are a variety of treatments available, and a number of ongoing clinical trails.

Trial Status

We do our best to keep the current status (closed, currently recruiting, upcoming) of each clinical trial up-to-date. Several clinical trials are listed at ClinicalTrials.gov as "currently recruiting" despite the estimated completion date having been long past. The contact for a particular clinical trial is your best bet to discover if a particular clinical trial is still open and recruiting.

Glossary

To help you as you read through these clinical trials, we have glossary of terms and their definitions. Words underlined with a dashed line are part of the glossary; to see their definition, simply click on the word.

Clinical Trials

Phase 1/2 Study Exploring the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of INCAGN01876 Combined With Immune Therapies in Advanced or Metastatic Malignancies

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of INCAGN01876 when given in combination with immune therapies in subjects with advanced or metastatic malignancies.

Phase II MEDI4736 in Combination With Chemotherapy for First-Line Treatment of Unresectable Mesothelioma (PrE0505)

Purpose: Patients with pleural mesothelioma that can not be surgically removed will receive durvalumab, in combination with standard chemotherapy of pemetrexed and cisplatin as first-line treatment.
Durvalumab is a type of drug called a monoclonal antibody (a type of protein). Laboratory tests show that it works by allowing the immune system to detect your cancer and reactivates the immune response. This may help to slow down the growth of cancer or may cause cancer cells to die. The purpose of this study is to see whether adding durvalumab to standard chemotherapy will improve overall survival (OS).

A Phase 2 Study of Durvalumab in Combination With Tremelimumab in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Purpose: his research study is studying a pair of immunotherapies as a possible treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma. The drugs involved in this study are Durvalumab and Tremelimumab.

Safety Study of MGD009 in B7-H3-expressing Tumors

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of MGD009 when given to patients with B7-H3-expressing tumors. The study will also evaluate what is the highest dose of MGD009 that can be given safely. Assessments will be done to see how the drug acts in the body (pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and to evaluate potential anti-tumor activity of MGD009.

A Study of the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of ABBV-368 as a Single Agent and Combination in Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

Purpose The primary purpose of this Phase 1, open-label study is to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of ABBV-368 as a monotherapy and in combination with nivolumab in participants with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The study will consist of 2 parts: ABBV-368 dose escalation and ABBV-368 tumor-specific dose expansion (non-small cell lung cancer [NSCLC] cohort and head and neck cancer cohort) .

Atezolizumab and Bevacizumab in Rare Solid Tumors

Purpose: The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if atezolizumab and bevacizumab can help to control rare solid tumors.

A Study of BMS-986148 in Patients With Select Advanced Solid Tumors

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity, antitumor activity and pharmacodynamics of BMS-986148 administered alone and in combination with nivolumab in patients with mesothelioma, non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer and gastric cancer.

Trial of Adcetris in CD30+ Malignant Mesothelioma

Purpose: The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if Adcetris (brentuximab vedotin) can help to control mesothelioma. The safety of this drug will also be studied.

CAR T Cell Receptor Immunotherapy Targeting Mesothelin for Patients With Metastatic Cancer

Purpose The NCI Surgery Branch has developed an experimental therapy for treating patients with metastatic cancer that involves taking white blood cells from the patient, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, genetically modifying these specific cells with a type of virus (retrovirus) to attack only the tumor cells, and then giving the cells back to the patient. This type of therapy is called gene transfer. In this protocol, we are modifying the patient s white blood cells with a retrovirus that has the gene for anti-mesothelin incorporated in the retrovirus.

Safety Study of Enoblituzumab (MGA271) in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Refractory Cancer

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of enoblituzumab (MGA271) in combination with Keytruda (pembrolizumab) when given to patients with B7-H3-expressing melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN), non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and other B7-H3 expressing cancers. The study will also evaluate what is the highest dose of enoblituzumab that can be given safely when given with pembrolizumab. Assessments will also be done to see how the drug acts in the body (pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics) and to evaluate potential anti-tumor activity of MGA271 in combination with pembrolizumab.
