Neoadjuvant Immune Checkpoint Blockade in Resectable Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The proposed study will evaluate the safety and feasibility of neoadjuvant nivolumab +/- ipilimumab in resectable MPM. In addition, maintenance nivolumab will be administered for 1 year following completion of standard bi-/tri-modality therapy.

Treatment of Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma (MESOTIP)

MESOTIP is a randomized trial evaluating the association of PIPAC and systemic chemotherapy versus systemic chemotherapy alone as 1st-line treatment of Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma In this study, patients in the experimental arm will be treated by 4 PIPAC (Cisplatine+Doxorubicine) alternating with 6 cycles of standard intravenous chemotherapy (Cisplatine+pemetrexed).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Detection of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

For cancers, such as mesothelioma, that spread to the lining of the stomach, detecting the cancer is very difficult with CT or MRI scans. Researchers at the University of Chicago want to find out if the new experimental MRI and ultrasound imaging techniques do a better job of detecting these cancers. Researchers will use new MRI and ultrasound techniques to see if it can find evidence of cancer that has spread to the lining of the abdomen, and right now these new techniques are only used for research.

A Study of CA-170 (Oral PD-L1, PD-L2 and VISTA Checkpoint Antagonist) in Patients With Advanced Tumors and Lymphomas

CA-170 is a rationally designed and orally available, small molecule that directly targets the Programmed death-ligands 1 and 2 (PD-L1/PD-L2), and V-domain Ig suppressor of T cell activation (VISTA) immune checkpoints and results in activation of T cell proliferation and cytokine production. This is a multi-center, open-label, Phase 1 trial of orally administered CA-170 in adult patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphomas who have progressed or are non-responsive to available therapies and for which no standard therapy exists.

Feasibility of the LUM Imaging System for Peritoneal Surface Malignancies

This single-site, feasibility study to assess the initial safety and efficacy of the LUM imaging System for in vivo imaging of metastases to the peritoneum from primary gastrointestinal cancer, ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. This feasibility study consists of two parts: (a) a dose escalation phase to select the optimal dose followed by (b) enrollment of additional patients to develop the tumor detection algorithm.

Long Term Follow-up of Mesothelioma Patients and Their Family Members With Germline Mutations in BAP1 and Other Genes

A gene provides instructions to the body. Mutated genes can sometimes cause cancer. Germline mutations are those people are born with. These mutations in the BAP1 gene can cause mesothelioma and other cancers. Researchers want to study people with germline mutations of BAP1 and other genes known to cause cancer.

A Study of Neoadjuvant/Adjuvant Durvalumab for the Treatment of Patients With Resectable Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

This is a Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center international study assessing the activity of durvalumab and chemotherapy administered prior to surgery compared with placebo and chemotherapy administered prior to surgery in terms of major pathological response.

A Study of Atezolizumab in Unresectable or Advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Primary Outcome Measures Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: From the time of initial response until documented tumor progression or death, whichever occurs first (up to approximately 4 years) ] The number of subjects whose best confirmed objective response is a CR or PR, divided by the number of treated subjects Secondary Outcome Measures Progression-free more

BEAT-meso: Bevacizumab and Atezolizumab in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (BEAT-meso)

The aim of this clinical trial is to assess the effect of treatment with a monoclonal antibody called atezolizumab in patients diagnosed with a type of lung cancer called malignant pleural mesothelioma. The efficacy (whether the treatment works), safety and tolerability (side effects of treatment) of atezolizumab plus bevacizumab in combination with standard chemotherapy versus bevacizumab in combination with standard chemotherapy will be investigated.

Pembrolizumab in Combination With Chemotherapy and Image-Guided Surgery for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM)

The study is a single-arm phase I trial to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and preliminary efficacy of the addition of pembrolizumab and image-guided resection to surgical therapy and chemotherapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM).
