Brief Summary:
This phase 2, open-label, single arm study aims to evaluate the efficacy of tremelimumab in combination with the anti-PD-L1 MEDI4736 in patients with unresectable malignant mesothelioma subjects

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pleural Mesothelioma Peritoneal Mesothelioma Drug: tremelimumab plus MEDI4736 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The prognosis of malignant mesothelioma (MM) patients remains dismal and effective treatment represents a high un-met medical need. Investigators have recently reported promising clinical activity of the anti-CTLA-4 mAb tremelimumab in pre-treated MM patients: disease control rate (DCR) was 31%, and survival rate at 1- and 2-years were 48.3% and 36.7%, respectively. These initial findings were corroborated by a second study in which, based on retrospective pharmacokinetic analyses, an intensified schedule of tremelimumab was utilized. Fifty-two % of patients achieved a DCR (median duration 10.9 months). These intriguing clinical results and the emerging efficacy of immunomodulatory mAb targeting the PD-1/PD-L1 axis in different tumor types, prompted us to design the NIBIT-MESO-1 study aimed to investigate the efficacy of tremelimumab combined with the anti-PD-L1 MEDI4736 in MM patients.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. immune-related (ir)- objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    proportion of subjects with complete response [CR] or partial Response [PR]) according to the ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST 1.1 in pleural or peritoneal subjects, respectively.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immune-related-Disease control rate (ir-DCR) [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    proportion of subjects with ir-CR, ir-PR, ir-stable disease according to the ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST 1.1 in pleural or peritoneal subjects, respectively

  2. Disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    proportion of subjects with CR, PR, stable disease according to the modified-RECIST or RECIST 1.1 in pleural or peritoneal subjects, respectively

  3. Immune-related-progression-free-survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    ir-PFS per ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST-1.1 for pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma respectively, will be defined as the time between the date of randomization and the date of progression or death

  4. progression-free-survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    PFS per modified-RECIST or RECIST-1.1 for pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma respectively, will be defined as the time between the date of randomization and the date of progression or death

  5. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 120 weeks ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the time from randomization until the date of death. For those subjects who have not died, OS will be censored at the recorded last date of subject contact, and for subjects with a missing recorded last date of contact, OS will be censored at the last date the subject was known to be alive.

  6. Safety (adverse events) [ Time Frame: 120 weeks ]
    The safety endpoints include adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs). Reporting of safety, extent of exposure, concomitant medications and discontinuation of study therapy will be based on all subjects who received at least 1 dose of treatment. Toxicity will be registered according to the NCICTC v 4.0

  7. Immune-related-ORR based on PD-L1 tumor expression [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    proportion of subjects with PD-L1 positive or negative tumor expression who achieved a complete response [CR] or partial Response [PR]) according to the ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST 1.1 in pleural or peritoneal subjects, respectively.

  8. Immune-related-Disease control rate based on PD-L1 tumor expression [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    proportion of subjects with PD-L1 positive or negative tumor expression who achieved a CR, PR, stable disease according to the ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST 1.1 in pleural or peritoneal subjects, respectively

  9. Immune-related-progression- free-survival based on PD-L1 tumor expression [ Time Frame: 60 weeks ]
    ir-PFS per ir-modified-RECIST or ir-RECIST-1.1 for pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma respectively, will be defined in subjects with PD-L1 positive or negative tumor expression as the time between the date of randomization and the date of progression or death

  10. Overall survival based on PD-L1 tumor expression [ Time Frame: 120 weeks ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined in subjects with PD-L1 positive or negative tumor expression as the time from randomization until the date of death. For those subjects who have not died, OS will be censored at the recorded last date of subject contact, and for subjects with a missing recorded last date of contact, OS will be censored at the last date the subject was known to be alive.
