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.
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.
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.
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.
A Study of Rebastinib (DCC-2036) in Combination With Carboplatin in Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors
This is an open-label Phase 1b/2 multicenter study of rebastinib (DCC-2036) in combination with carboplatin designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

Light Dosimetry for Photodynamic Therapy With Porfimer Sodium in Treating Participants With Malignant Mesothelioma or Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer With Pleural Disease Undergoing Surgery
This phase I trial studies the side effects and how well light dosimetry system works during photodynamic therapy with porfimer sodium in treating participants with malignant mesothelioma or non-small cell lung cancer with pleural disease undergoing surgery. Light dosimetry measures the amount of laser light given during photodynamic therapy. Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as porfimer sodium, that becomes active when it is exposed to light. The activated drug may kill tumor cells. Using light dosimetry for intraoperative photodynamic therapy may help doctors estimate how much light is delivered during photodynamic therapy and decide if the treatment should be stopped or continued.
