  Purpose

This randomized phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of cediranib maleate when given together with pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin and to see how well it works in treating patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Cediranib maleate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin together with cediranib maleate may kill more tumor cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum tolerated dose determined if the dose-limiting toxicity rate is less than or equal to 33% according to NCI CTCAE version 4.0 (Phase I) [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Progression-free survival (Phase II) [ Time Frame: From date of registration to date of first documentation of progression or symptomatic deterioration, or death due to any cause, assessed up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A stratified log-rank test at the 0.1 level will be used.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A stratified log-rank test will be used to compare overall survival.

  • Response (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A stratified chi-square test will be used to compare response and toxicity between the two arms.

  • Toxicity assessed using NCI CTCAE version 4.0 (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A stratified chi-square test will be used to compare response and toxicity between the two arms.


Estimated Enrollment: 116

Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I (phase II)
Patients receive pemetrexed disodium IV over 10 minutes and cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1 and oral cediranib maleate once daily at the maximum tolerated dose determined in phase I on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then receive oral cediranib maleate alone once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. To establish the maximum tolerated dose and the recommended phase II dose of cediranib maleate in combination with pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. (Phase I) II. To compare the progression-free survival of patients treated with pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin with vs without cediranib maleate. (Phase II) III. To compare the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens. (Phase II) IV. To assess the safety and toxicity profile of these regimens. V. To assess the response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial responses) and disease control rate (responsive or stable disease) using RECIST criteria and modified RECIST criteria for pleural tumors in a subset of patients with measurable disease. (Phase II) VI. To assess the rate of agreement between local and central pathology review of mesothelioma and its histologic subtypes. (Phase II) VII. To collect specimens for banking for use in future research studies. (Phase II)

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, phase I dose-escalation study of cediranib maleate followed by a phase II randomized study. Patients enrolled in the phase II portion of the study are stratified according to Zubrod performance status (0-1 vs 2) and histologic subtype (epithelioid vs biphasic/sarcomatoid).

PHASE I: Patients receive pemetrexed disodium IV over 10 minutes and cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1 and oral cediranib maleate once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then receive oral cediranib maleate alone once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PHASE II: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive pemetrexed disodium IV over 10 minutes and cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1 and oral cediranib maleate once daily at the maximum tolerated dose determined in phase I on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then receive oral cediranib maleate alone once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM II: Patients receive pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin as in arm I and oral placebo once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then receive oral placebo alone once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up periodically for up to 3 years.
