A group of drugs called statins used for controlling cholesterol are showing that they can help mesothelioma patients taking PD-1 inhibitors survive longer. Researchers in Italy and the Netherlands found this information in an international study of 250 patients. The patients studied either had pleural mesothelioma or non-small cell lung[…]
Primary Outcome Measures safety of PB103 [ Time Frame: one year ] assessment of adverse events Secondary Outcome Measures efficacy of PB103 [ Time Frame: one year ] assessment of Progression Free Survival, PFS Inclusion Criteria Recipient: Recipients (Subjects) are between 20-70 years of age.

A clinical trial being tested on lung cancer could potentially be a good treatment for people with mesothelioma. The combination of Keytruda and Tumor Treating Fields is being tested for non-small cell lung cancer. Keytruda is an immune checkpoint inhibitor that allows the immune system to find cancer cells hiding[…]
Genetically modified T cells are a promising treatment for those suffering from mesothelioma. There is only data from five patients, but the results so far look good. The Phase I part of the study is looking at the safety and efficacy of the treatment and is finding out what dosage[…]
Primary Outcome Measures Primary endpoint for cohort 1: Objective response rate (ORR) according to RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: At the date of tumor assessment according to RECIST 1.1, assessed up to 2 years after registration ] ORR according to RECIST 1.1 is defined as the proportion of patients, whose best overall response is[…]
Mesothelioma is a devastating cancer that primarily affects the lining of the lungs and abdomen. Once exposed to asbestos, it can take years to develop and after being diagnosed, there are not many options for patients. Since there is not a cure, clinical trials can give people hope and can[…]
If you are interested in learning more about mesothelioma, we have a curated list of different events coming up in 2020. If you live near or are able to travel to these events, they can help you and your loved ones understand the disease better. Mayo Clinic Radiation Oncology: Current[…]
Today starts Lung Cancer Awareness Month. In November, we come together to recognize this deadly cancer and learn about different causes and treatments. Knowing the different statistics and causes could help save a lot of people’s lives. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death due to cancer in men[…]
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability and to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose of INCMGA00012 in combination with common standard-of-care chemotherapy regimens in participants with advanced solid tumors.
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.
