Dasatinib in Resectable Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how dasatinib affects biomarker levels in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma that may be able to be removed by surgery. The safety and effectiveness of this drug will also be studied.
The primary objective of this novel phase I trial will be the level of biomarker modulation of p-Src Tyr 419 by induction dasatinib therapy in patients with resectable malignant pleural mesothelioma.
Secondary objectives include overall and progression-free survival, tumor radiographic and pathologic response, and safety-toxicity profiles. Exploratory analyses will include additional biomarker evaluation in pre- and post-treatment tumor specimens, and serum/platelet/pleural effusion biomarker modulation.
