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.

Efficacy of a Maintenance Treatment With TALAzoparib Following First Line Platinum-based Chemotherapy in Malignant MESOthelioma (TALAMESO)

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 1.1 criteria and/or, ii) non-equivocal[…]

Cryoablation for the Promotion of Local Tumor Infiltration in Patients With Mesothelioma

Primary Outcome Measures Local tumor infiltration by cytotoxic cluster of differentiation 8 positive (CD8+) cells [ Time Frame: After cryoablation of mesothelioma up to 1 year ] Will be tested by cryoablating a small region of tumor at the time of pleural biopsy. Preponderance of T cells in ablated tumor tissue in comparison to[…]

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.
