Tivantinib in Treating Patients With Previously Treated Malignant Mesothelioma
This phase II trial studies how well tivantinib works in treating patients with previously treated malignant mesothelioma. Tivantinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Recurrent Malignant Mesothelioma
Stage II Pleural Mesothelioma
Stage III Pleural Mesothelioma
Stage IV Pleural Mesothelioma
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis

|Official Title:||A Phase 2 Study of ARQ 197 in Patients With Previously-Treated Malignant Mesothelioma|
- Objective radiologic response rate (complete or partial response) assessed by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Incidence of adverse events, graded per NCI CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Toxicity will be summarized by type and grade.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method.
- Time to disease progression [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method.
- Association between baseline HGF, MET gene amplification, MET IHC and PFS [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will be evaluated using the Cox regression model.
- Change in baseline levels of continuous or ordinal markers (e.g., serum HGF/MET IHC) between responders and non-responders [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Fisher's exact test will be performed for binary variables (e.g., presence/absence of MET gene amplification). Paired t-tests or Wilcoxon signed-ranks test, whichever is appropriate, will be used to examine the changes with treatment in the laboratory correlates that are continuous and McNemar's test will be used for binary markers.
- Change in serum HGF or MET IHC and tumor size change (percent reduction in sum of longest diameters) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will be evaluated by Spearman's rank correlation coefficient.

|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (tivantinib)
Patients receive tivantinib PO BID. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Correlative studiesDrug: Tivantinib
I. To determine the objective response rate of patients with malignant mesothelioma who are treated with ARQ 197 (tivantinib).
I. To determine the progression-free survival of patients with malignant mesothelioma who are treated with ARQ 197.
II. To determine the toxicity experienced by patients with malignant mesothelioma who are treated with ARQ 197.
III. To determine median and overall survival of patients with malignant mesothelioma who are treated with ARQ 197.
I. To determine the frequency of mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET) gene amplification in malignant mesothelioma patient tumor samples, and to correlate the results with MET immunohistochemistry (IHC).
II. To determine whether MET gene amplification results in increased sensitivity to ARQ 197 as observed by improved clinical outcomes (response rate [RR] and progression free survival [PFS]) compared to those without MET gene over-expression/amplification.
III. To determine whether high baseline serum hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), as well as changes in serum HGF during treatment at pre-defined early time points, correlate with treatment efficacy and clinical outcome, as measured by response rate and progression-free survival.
IV. To identify mutations by sequencing of specific areas of the MET gene in tumor samples (semaphorin [SEMA], jumonji [JM] and tyrosine kinase domains).
V. To perform immunohistochemistry (IHC) of mesothelioma tumors for HGF, MET and phosphorylated (p)-MET (pY1003 and pY1230/34/35).
VI. To assess serum HGF and serum soluble MET levels by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) (R&D systems) pre-treatment, after 2 cycles and at disease progression.
Patients receive tivantinib orally (PO) twice daily (BID). Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 1 year.
