Phase 1 Study of INBRX-109 in Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors Including Sarcomas

This is a first-in-human, open-label, non-randomized, two-part phase 1 trial of INBRX-109, which is a recombinant humanized multivalent antibody targeting the human death receptor 5 (DR5).

Prospectively Collected Pleural Biopsies for Validation of Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Prognostic Biomarkers

This research study is evaluating a new method for determining stage and prognosis of individuals with malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Autologous CAR-T/TCR-T Cell Immunotherapy for Malignancies

This is a single arm, open-label, uni-center, phase I-II study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of CAR-T/TCR-T cell immunotherapy in treating with different malignancies patients.

DENdritic Cell Immunotherapy for Mesothelioma (DENIM)

This study is to evaluate the overall survival (OS) rate (determined from the time of randomization in the study) Purpose: of subjects who receive dendritic cell immunotherapy with MesoPher plus best supportive care (BSC) compared to BSC alone.

Chemoradiation With Durvalumab Followed by Durvalumab Maintenance for Limited Disease Small Cell Lung Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] To evaluate the efficacy of consolidation immunotherapy (Durvalumab) after durvalumab/Etoposide/cisplatin based-CCRT for LD-SCLC Secondary Outcome Measures Overall survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] To evaluate the efficacy of consolidation immunotherapy (Durvalumab) after durvalumab/Etoposide/cisplatin based-CCRT for LD-SCLC Safety analysis (AEs according to CTCAE more

Association Between Proton Pump Inhibitors and Hematologic Toxicity of Pemetrexed (IPPEM)

pemetrexed is a multi-folate inhibitor approved in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pleural mesothelioma. Its toxicity profile is mainly hematologic (anemia, neutropenia and thrombopenia) and can be limiting when > grade 2 according to NCI-CTCAE criteria. First clinical trials highlighted hematologic toxicity, especially anemia, which was reduced by decreasing pemetrexed dosage from 600 to 500 mg/m² Q3W and by adding systematic vitamin supplementation (B9/B12). Despite this, incidence of hematological toxicity remains frequent with anemia occurring in more than 20% of patients treated by pemetrexed in combination. The investigators aim to investigate the potential association between PPIs and pemetrexed combination and the incidence of hematological toxicity in a multicenter and prospective study.

Stepped Palliative Care Versus Early Integrated Palliative Care in Patients With Advanced Lung Cancer (STEP PC)

Purpose: This research study is evaluating ways to provide palliative care to patients who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer

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.

MesoTRAP: A Study Comparing Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Partial Pleurectomy/Decortication With Indwelling Pleural Catheter in Patients With Trapped Lung Due to Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma. (MesoTRAP)

Purpose: Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a cancer, caused by asbestos, which currently affects 2500 people in the UK each year. The main symptom is breathlessness caused by fluid building up in the space between the lung and the chest wall (pleural effusion). Treatment involves draining the fluid to allow the lung to re-expand (pleurodesis). However, sometimes tumour growth over the surface of the lung can prevent it from re-expanding. This ‘trapped’ lung results in fluid re-accumulation and repeated drainage which can lead to discomfort and multiple hospital visits.

One approach to dealing with ‘trapped’ lung in mesothelioma is to insert a thin tube (Indwelling Pleural catheterIPC) into the space around the lung. The tube can stay in place for a long time allowing patients to drain off fluid at home.

Another approach is a keyhole surgical operation (video-assisted thoracoscopic partial pleurectomy/decortication – VAT-PD) to remove as much tumour as possible from the lining of the lung to allow it to re-expand.

While both approaches are currently offered in clinical practice, it is not known which of the two is most effective at relieving breathlessness. The only way to find out is to conduct a research trial comparing the two. The Investigators plan to do this, but first of all need to carry out a small pilot study to collect information necessary to help plan the full study.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and Avelumab Immunotherapy for Treatment of Malignant Mesothelioma

Purpose:The purpose of this study is to find out whether the combination of avelumab and SBRT is safe and what effect avelumab has on mesothelioma when given in combination with SBRT. In addition, a goal of this protocol is to study the effect of radiation therapy on the immune system. It is thought that radiation treatment may create a form of ‘vaccine’ against cancer inside the body and immunotherapy may improve this effect. The combination of radiation treatment and immunotherapy may be more effective against cancer than either radiation or immunotherapy alone.
