Treatment of Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma (MESOTIP)

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).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Detection of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

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.

Feasibility of the LUM Imaging System for Peritoneal Surface Malignancies

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.

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.
