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

Primary Outcome Measures Pre-treatment Prognostic Algorithm Validation [ Time Frame: 4 years ] The primary objective is to utilize a novel prognostic algorithm to predict the outcome of MPM patients. This algorithm includes 4 different tests: molecular, radiological, and blood based. It will be performed on 240 prospectively-collected samples. A score of 0-4 will[…]

Molecular, Pathologic Intra Tumoral Heterogeneity in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (SCITH-MESO)

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a rare pleural cancer, which could be primary or secondary to an asbestos exposure. To enhance our knowledge of this rare disease, an exploration of genetic and tumor mechanism is mandatory. One of the principal difficulty is to harvest sufficient tumour pieces to perform multi-omics analysis. The goal of the SCITH-MESO study is to harvest larges pieces of tumour during a routine surgical procedure of MPM diagnosis by mean of pleural biopsies during VATS surgery. Operating samples will increase a tissue bank collection (CRB).

Dielectric Properties of Matched Tissue Samples From Thoracic Malignancies and Corresponding Normal Tissues

The purpose of the Dielectrics Properties of Thoracic Malignancies Study (DPTMS) is to provide a wealth of knowledge for investigators involved in establishing a new and effective treatment for a variety of solid tumors using tumor treatment fields. It is intended to provide biospecimen (tumor/healthy) together with demographic data (age, sex, race, occupational history, and other epidemiologic information), and clinical data (stage, treatment, survival information, and annotated CT’s). Our specific aims are to test the following hypotheses: 1) Electric properties of thoracic tumors differ from electric properties of surrounding healthy tissue 2) Different tumor types will have different electric properties 3) Electric properties of individual tumors are heterogeneous 4) Electric properties of tumors are related to the structure and composition of the underlying tissue 5) Use of standard medical imaging data (CT) will permit mapping of electric properties.

Mesothelin-targeted CAR T-cell Therapy in Patients With Mesothelioma

This study will test the safety of MSLN-targeted CAR-T cells at different doses to find the safest dose to give to people with MPM. The researchers want to see what effects, if any, the study treatment has on people with this type of cancer. This study is the first time that an MSLN-targeted CAR-T cell treatment with an anti-PD1 component is being given to people.
