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
Clinical Trials: 'Peritoneal Mesothelioma' Category
Also called abdominal mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare malignancy arising out of the thin membrane surrounding the walls and many organs of the abdomen.
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).
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.
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.
Intraperitoneal MCY-M11 (Mesothelin-targeting CAR) for Treatment of Advanced Ovarian Cancer and Peritoneal Mesothelioma
This is a phase 1 dose escalation study to characterize the feasibility, safety and tolerability of MCY-M11 when administered as an intraperitoneal (IP) infusion for 3 weekly doses for women with platinum resistant high grade serous adenocarcinoma of the ovary, primary peritoneum, or fallopian tube, and subjects with peritoneal mesothelioma with recurrence after prior chemotherapy.
Mesothelin-Targeted Immunotoxin LMB-100 in Combination With SEL-110 in Subjects With Malignant Pleural or Peritoneal Mesothelioma
Purpose: mesothelioma is cancer of the tissue that lines some organs. A new drug, LMB-100, may bind to a protein on mesothelioma tumors and kill cancer cells. But sometimes the body makes antibodies that reduce how well LMB-100 works. Researchers want to see if adding the drug SEL-110 to LMB-100 will prevent these antibodies from forming.
Purpose: Phase I study to establish safety and feasibility of intravenous or intrapleural administered lentiviral transduced huCART-meso cells with or without lymphodepletion. Intravenous administration of huCART-meso cells is planned with or without cyclophosphamide as lymphodepleting chemotherapy.
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).
Purpose: This study will determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) for oral bosutinib when used in combination with pemetrexed. The MTD is the highest dose of bosutinib with pemetrexed that can be given without causing severe side effects. This study will also test the safety of this combination and see what effects (good or bad) it has on participants and their cancer.
