Heated Intra-peritoneal Chemotherapy With Doxorubicin and Cisplatin for the Treatment of Resectable, Refractory, or Recurrent Abdominal or Pelvic Tumors in Pediatric Patients, T.O.A.S.T. I.T. Study

This early phase I trial studies how well heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy with doxorubicin and cisplatin work for the treatment of abdominal or pelvic tumors that can be removed by surgery (resectable), does not respond to treatment (refractory), or has come back (recurrent). Heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy is a procedure performed in combination with abdominal surgery for cancer that has spread to the abdomen. It involves the infusion of a heated chemotherapy solution that circulates into the abdominal cavity. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Heating a chemotherapy solution and infusing it directly into the abdomen may kill more cells.

A Study of Pembrolizumab in Combination With Cisplatin and Pemetrexed in Advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) (MK-3475-A17)

Primary Outcome Measures Number of Participants Who Experience a Dose-limiting Toxicity (DLT) Per Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (AEs), Version 5.0 (CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 weeks ] DLTs will be assessed during the first cycle (21 days) and are defined as Grade (Gr) 4 hematologic toxicities (any period), except neutropenia[…]

Mesothelioma Early Detection by VOCs (MED-VOC)

This is a two phase study, The first phase (phase 1) will identify potential biomarkers among asbestos exposed individuals with pleural mesothelioma. The second phase (phase 2), is a double blinded case-matched controlled study to determine the predictive capability, sensitivity, and specificity of these biomarkers in detecting early stage pleural mesothelioma. Biomarkers in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in exhaled breath samples from subjects with either pleural mesothelioma or pleural plaques, will be evaluated. A biomarker present in serum will also be concurrently evaluated in the same cohort. The soluble serum biomarker mesothelin related peptides (SMRP), which has been posited as a biomarker for mesothelioma, will be analyzed for its relationship to the breath VOC profile.

A Feasibility Study Evaluating Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy Using Extensive Pleural Resection (SMARTER)

Primary Outcome Measures Maximum Tolerated Dose for Background Radiation [ Time Frame: Up to five years ]AEs will be graded by CTCAE. Maximum tolerated dose is the dose level that do not result in fatal lung injury (grade 5 lung toxicity) or life-threatening or fatal treatment related toxicity (grade 4+). Secondary Outcome Measures Patient[…]

A Clinical Study of Anetumab Ravtansine in Adults With Solid Tumors Who Have Been Treated in Previous Bayer-sponsored Anetumab Ravtansine Studies

The purpose of this study is to enable patients with solid tumors, who received anetumab ravtansine in a Bayer-sponsored clinical trial, to continue treatment after their respective study has been closed. The patients will be observed to collect information on how safe and efficient the drug is.

Anti-Mesothelin Immunotoxin LMB-100 Followed by Pembrolizumab in Malignant Mesothelioma

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.
