Mesothelioma Early Detection by VOCs (MED-VOC)

This is a two phase study, The first phase (phase 1) will identify potential biomarkers among asbestos exposed individuals with pleural mesothelioma. The second phase (phase 2), is a double blinded case-matched controlled study to determine the predictive capability, sensitivity, and specificity of these biomarkers in detecting early stage pleural mesothelioma. Biomarkers in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in exhaled breath samples from subjects with either pleural mesothelioma or pleural plaques, will be evaluated. A biomarker present in serum will also be concurrently evaluated in the same cohort. The soluble serum biomarker mesothelin related peptides (SMRP), which has been posited as a biomarker for mesothelioma, will be analyzed for its relationship to the breath VOC profile.

Phase I Trial HIPEC With Nal-irinotecan

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of intraperitoneal administration of heated nanoliposomal Irinotecan in cytoreductive surgery (CRS), which is surgery designed to remove as much of the cancer as possible, and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) procedures.

A Feasibility Study Evaluating Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy Using Extensive Pleural Resection (SMARTER)

Primary Outcome Measures Maximum Tolerated Dose for Background Radiation [ Time Frame: Up to five years ]AEs will be graded by CTCAE. Maximum tolerated dose is the dose level that do not result in fatal lung injury (grade 5 lung toxicity) or life-threatening or fatal treatment related toxicity (grade 4+). Secondary Outcome Measures Patient morbidity [ Time Frame: Up to five years ]NCI more

A Clinical Study of Anetumab Ravtansine in Adults With Solid Tumors Who Have Been Treated in Previous Bayer-sponsored Anetumab Ravtansine Studies

The purpose of this study is to enable patients with solid tumors, who received anetumab ravtansine in a Bayer-sponsored clinical trial, to continue treatment after their respective study has been closed. The patients will be observed to collect information on how safe and efficient the drug is.

Anti-Mesothelin Immunotoxin LMB-100 Followed by Pembrolizumab in Malignant Mesothelioma

Treatment outcomes for people with pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma are often poor. The drug LMB-100 can attack and kill cancer cells. The drug pembrolizumab helps the immune system fight cancer. Together, these drugs might help people with these cancers.

Using a Targeted Cancer Vaccine (Galinpepimut-S) With Immunotherapy (Nivolumab) in Mesothelioma

Primary Outcome Measures Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]A dose will be considered tolerable if there are no more than 2 out of 10 participants with dose limiting toxicities. Inclusion Criteria Age >/= 18 years Karnofsky performance status >/= 70% Pathologic diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma at MSK Positive immunohistochemical staining for WT-1 Patients mesothelioma/" title="Continue reading.">more

Impact of Cardiac Coherence on Anxiety in Patients Operated on for a Peritoneal Carcinosis (COCOON)

Primary Outcome Measures Subjective anxiety score by using the state-trait anxiety inventory form A (STAI-Y form A) questionnaire [ Time Frame: 90 days ]State anxiety reflects the current emotional state, which allows the patient’s nervousness and worry to be assessed during the session. The range is from 20 (lower anxiety) to 80 (higher anxiety). The patient must answer 20 more

MTG201 Plus Nivolumab in Patients With Relapsed Pleural Mesothelioma

Twelve patients with relapsed malignant pleural mesothelioma will be treated with intratumoral injections of MTG201, a replication incompetent adenovirus, modified by the insertion of the reduced expression in immortalized cells (REIC)/Dikkopf (Dkk)-3 gene, on Days 1, 8, 22, and 50. Patients will also receive every 4 weekly intravenous infusions of nivolumab, 480 mg, starting on Day 2. Safety and anti-tumor activity will be monitored at regular intervals throughout the study.

Naptumomab Estafenatox in Combination With Durvalumab in Subjects With Selected Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

This is a dose escalation (Phase 1b) and cohort expansions (Phase 2) study to assess the safety and tolerability of a combination of Nap with durvalumab in subjects with selected advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

Study of ASTX295 in Patients With Solid Tumors With Wild-Type p53

Study ASTX295-01 is a first in human Phase 1/2 open-label study of the safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary activity of ASTX295 in subjects with wild-type TP53 advanced solid tumors. Phase 1 is a dose escalation and dose expansion study design followed by a Phase 2 study.
