Brief Summary:
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, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. 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.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended phase II dose of cediranib maleate (cediranib) in combination with cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium (pemetrexed). (Phase I) II. To assess the safety and toxicity of the regimen. (Phase I) III. To assess whether cisplatin/pemetrexed plus cediranib as compared to cisplatin/pemetrexed plus placebo improves progression-free survival in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. (Phase II) IV. To compare overall survival in patients treated with cisplatin/pemetrexed plus cediranib to those treated with cisplatin/pemetrexed plus placebo. (Phase II) V. To assess the safety and toxicity profile of the regimen. (Phase II) VI. To assess response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial responses) and disease control rate (response or stable disease) in the subset of patients with measurable disease by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria. (Phase II) VII. To assess response rate and disease control rate using modified RECIST criteria for pleural tumors in the subset of patients with measurable disease by modified RECIST criteria for pleural tumors. (Phase II) VIII. To assess the rate of agreement between local and central pathology review of mesothelioma and its histologic subtypes. (Phase II) IX. To collect specimens for banking for use in future research studies. (Phase II)

OUTLINE: This is a phase I dose-escalation study of cediranib maleate followed by a phase II study.

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

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

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 2 years and then at 3 years.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum Tolerated Dose of Cediranib in Combination With Cisplatin and Pemetrexed (Phase I) [ Time Frame: Weekly during first cycle (1cycle = 21 days). Then will be reported every cycle while patient is on treatment. ]

    MTD was determined by testing dose-de-escalation to 20mg PO daily on dose de-escalation cohort 1 to 2 with 3 to 6 patients each. MTD reflects the highest dose of drug that did not cause a Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT) in > 33% of participants. Toxicities will be graded according to the CTEP Active Version of the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events. Dose-limiting toxicities (DLT) apply only during Cycle 1 and must be drug-related (i.e. possibly, probably or definitely related to one of the 3 study drugs). The following events occurring in the first cycle of treatment are considered dose limiting.

    1. Febrile neutropenia
    2. Grade 4 neutrophil count decrease for more than 7 days' duration
    3. Grade 4 platelet count decrease
    4. Grade 3 or 4 non-hematologic toxicity (excluding alopecia)

  2. 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, whichever came first, assessed up to 5 years.Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression. ]
    From date of registration to date of first documentation of progression or symptomatic deterioration, or death due to any cause. Patients last known to be alive and progression free are censored at date of last contact. Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v 1.1), as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesions, or the appearance of new lesions.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (Phase II) [ Time Frame: From date of registration to death.Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression. After progression, follow up will occur every 6 months for the first two years and then at the end of the third year after registration. ]
    From date of registration to date of death due to any cause. Patients last known to be alive are censored at date of last contact.

  2. Response Rate by RECIST1.1 (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression, up to 3 years. Best response is documented for as long as the patient remains on protocol treatment. ]

    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.1): Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all measurable and non-measurable disease; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

    All target measurable lesions must be assessed using the same techniques as baseline.


  3. Disease Control Rate by RECIST 1.1 (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression, up to 3 years.Disease control rate is documented for as long as the patient remains on protocol treatment. ]

    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.1): Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all measurable and non-measurable disease; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Stable Disease (STA): Does not qualify for CR, PR, Progression or Symptomatic Deterioration. Disease Control Rate (DCR) = CR + PR + STA

    All target measurable lesions must be assessed using the same techniques as baseline.


  4. Response Rate by Modified RECIST (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression, up to 3 years.Best response is documented for as long as the patient remains on protocol treatment. ]

    Per modified RECIST for Pleural Tumors. In addition to RECIST1.1, for modified RECIST, measurements based on the sum of 6 CT cuts in the pleural perpendicular to the chest wall are applied to standard RECIST criterial (sum of 6 = one univariate diameter). Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all measurable and non-measurable disease; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

    All target measurable lesions must be assessed using the same techniques as baseline.


  5. Disease Control Rate by Modified RECIST (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Disease assessment will be repeated every 6 weeks until disease progression, up to 3 years.Disease control is documented for as long as the patient remains on protocol treatment. ]

    Per modified RECIST for Pleural Tumors. In addition to RECIST1.1, for modified RECIST, measurements based on the sum of 6 CT cuts in the pleural perpendicular to the chest wall are applied to standard RECIST criterial (sum of 6 = one univariate diameter). Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all measurable and non-measurable disease; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Stable Disease (STA), does not qualify for CR, PR, Progression or Symptomatic Deterioration. Disease Control Rate (DCR) = CR + PR + STA.

    All target measurable lesions must be assessed using the same techniques as baseline.


  6. (Phase I) Number of Patients With Gr 3 Through 5 Adverse Events That Are Related to Study Drugs [ Time Frame: Toxicity assessment is repeated weekly during first cycle (1cycle = 21 days), then every cycle while patient is on treatment. ]
    Adverse Events (AEs) are reported by CTCAE Version 4.0. Only adverse events that are possibly, probably or definitely related to study drug are reported.

  7. (Phase II) Number of Patients With Gr 3 Through 5 Adverse Events That Are Related to Study Drugs [ Time Frame: Toxicity assessment is repeated every 3 weeks while patient is on treatment. ]
    Adverse Events (AEs) are reported by CTCAE Version 4.0. Only adverse events that are possibly, probably or definitely related to study drug are reported.
