NCT ID: NCT03656549 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

Dose Individualization of Pemetrexed - IMPROVE-I

IMPROVE-I
Start date: October 1, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Rationale: Pemetrexed is a multi-targeted folate antagonist, which is primarily indicated for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and mesothelioma. Dosing of cytotoxic agents like pemetrexed requires balancing the dual risk of sub-therapy and toxicity. Administration of pemetrexed to patients with a creatinine clearance <45 ml/min is currently not advised. Pemetrexed is dosed based on body surface area (BSA), while renal function and dose are the sole determinants for systemic exposure. This causes 3 major issues: 1. In patients with renal dysfunction, BSA-based dosing may lead to haematological toxicity 2. Patients have to discontinue treatment due to declining renal function, and are withheld effective treatment 3. Even in patients with adequate renal function (GFR >45 ml/min) treatment may be improved by individualized dosing based on renal function, resulting in less toxicity. Also, BSA-based dosing may lead to ineffective therapy in patients with above average renal function. The investigators aim to address these problems. Objective: The overall main objective is to develop a safe and effective individualized dosing regimen for pemetrexed. Study design:IMPROVE-I is a single arm phase II pharmacokinetic safety study using a Simon two stage design to assess the feasibility of renal function-based dosing of pemetrexed in renal impaired patients. Study population: IMPROVE-I includes 23 patients with NSCLC or mesothelioma with an estimated creatinine clearance <45ml/min that meet all other requirements for pemetrexed treatment. Intervention:Patients will be treated with pemetrexed, with dosing based on renal function. As a safety measure, the first dose will be calculated to 50% exposure. After administration, safety and pharmacokinetics are assessed. If tolerated well, dose escalation to reach 100% exposure is performed, including assessment of safety and pharmacokinetics. Main study endpoints: The fraction (percentage) of patients with attainment of therapeutic exposure. Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: The investigators consider the extra burden from participating in the planned studies limited. The extra interventions compared to routine care, consist of sampling extra blood. The pharmacokinetic assessments require placement of one additional intravenous catheter. To ensure minimal impact of study participation on daily life, a limited sampling strategy will be used. Patients may benefit from participating in IMPROVE I and -II, as they will be treated with a potentially safe and effective drug that is dosed individually, which prevents toxic exposure

Dose Individualization of Pemetrexed - IMPROVE-III

IMPROVE-III
Start date: September 3, 2018
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Also, BSA-based dosing may lead to ineffective therapy in patients with above average renal function. The investigators aim to address these problems. Objective: The overall main objective is to develop a safe and effective individualized dosing regimen for pemetrexed. Study design: IMPROVE-III is an explorative microdosing study to assess the extrapolability of microdose-pharmacokinetics to the pharmacokinetics of a therapeutic dose. Study population: IMPROVE-III includes 10 patients of IMPROVE-I and/or IMPROVE-II. Intervention: patients will be administered a microdose with subsequent pharmacokinetic assessment. Main study endpoints: The predictive performance of microdosing to predict full dose pharmacokinetics

Dose Individualization of Pemetrexed - IMPROVE-II

IMPROVE-II
Start date: September 3, 2018

Objective: The overall main objective is to develop a safe and effective individualized dosing regimen for pemetrexed. Study design: IMPROVE-II is an open label, double arm, randomized study to compare renal function-based dosing of pemetrexed versus BSA-based dosing on attainment of therapeutic exposure. Study population: IMPROVE-II includes 94 patients with NSCLC or mesothelioma that are eligible for pemetrexed treatment. Intervention: patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to Arm A (BSA-based dosing according drug label) or to Arm B (renal function based dosing). The renal function-based dose will be calculated to reach the target AUC. Pharmacokinetic assessment after administration will be performed after the first pemetrexed dose in both arms. Main study endpoints: The fraction (percentage) of patients with attainment of therapeutic exposure with BSA-based dosing versus renal function-based dosing. Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: The investigators consider the extra burden from participating in the planned studies limited.

NCT ID: NCT03644550 Not yet recruiting - Mesothelioma Clinical Trials

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

Start date: September 19, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Background: 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. Objective: To test if pembrolizumab given after LMB-100 shrinks tumors in people with pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma that has not responded to platinum-based therapy Design: Participants will be screened with: Tumor sample. Participants will have a biopsy if one is needed. Medical history Physical exam Blood, heart, and urine tests X-rays and scans: Participants will lie on a table. A machine will take pictures of the body. Participants will receive LMB-100 by IV on days 1, 3, and 5 of two 21-day cycles. They will be observed for up to 2 hours after each infusion. They will receive drugs like Benadryl, Tylenol, and Zantac to help with side effects. Starting with the 3rd cycle, participants will receive pembrolizumab by IV on day 1 of each 21-day cycle for up to 2 years. Participants will have blood and urine tests, heart tests, and chest x-rays at least once per cycle. They will have scans every 6 weeks. Participants may opt to provide tumor biopsies before starting the first cycle, after 2 cycles of LMB-100, and after 2 cycles of pembrolizumab. Participants will a follow-up visit 4-6 weeks after their last drug dose of the study drug. This includes blood and heart tests and scans. They may then have scans every 6 weeks. Participants will be contacted once a year for follow-up.
