Primary Outcome Measures Non-progression proportion [ Time Frame: 6 month after starting talazoparib ] The non-progression proportion is defined as the proportion of patients free of progression 6 months after talazoparib start. Disease progression will be based on (i) tumor assessment made by the investigators according to the RECIST[…]
Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer of the mesothelium resulting from asbestos exposure. Many clinical trials have been found to help patients but there is still no cure. People primarily have pleural mesothelioma where the linings of the lungs have cancer, but it can also affect the lining of the abdomen[…]
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[…]
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of intraperitoneal administration of heated nanoliposomal Irinotecan in cytoreductive surgery (CRS), which is surgery designed to remove as much of the cancer as possible, and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) procedures.
Treatment outcomes for people with pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma are often poor. The drug LMB-100 can attack and kill cancer cells. The drug pembrolizumab helps the immune system fight cancer. Together, these drugs might help people with these cancers.
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).[…]
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.
