|Pleural Mesothelioma||Drug: Pembrolizumab Drug: Cisplatin and Pemetrexed||Phase 1|
- To determine the rate of induction of a Gamma-Interferon Gene Expression profile (GEP) using a CLIA Nanostring nCounter based assay (performed in Merck's CLIA laboratory) in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma treated with pembrolizumab
- To determine the safety and feasibility of neoadjuvant pembrolizumab in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
- To determine 1-year progression-free survival (PFS) in patients treated with pembrolizumab via a multimodality approach (including neoadjuvant pembrolizumab, extended pleurectomy/decortication, adjuvant pemetrexed/cisplatin and if applicable adjuvant pembrolizumab).
- To determine the median overall survival (OS) for MM patients treated with pembrolizumab via a multimodality approach (including neoadjuvant pembrolizumab, extended pleurectomy/decortication, adjuvant pemetrexed/cisplatin and if applicable adjuvant pembrolizumab).
- To determine the 1-year PFS, disease free survival (DFS) and OS for PD-L1 positive or TCIP-positive MM patients treated with a multimodality approach.
- To determine safety of adjuvant pembrolizumab treatment after surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy
- To determine the objective response rate to single-agent pembrolizumab via PET/CT in previously untreated MM patients, and to correlate this response with changes in the immune microenvironment.

Neoadjuvant pembrolizumab, followed by surgery, followed by adjuvant pemetrexed and cisplatin
Neoadjuvant pembrolizumab every 21 days for three cycles
Drug: Cisplatin and Pemetrexed
Adjuvant chemotherapy with cisplatin and pemetrexed every 21 days for 4 cycles
- Gamma-Interferon Gene Expression profile (GEP) response rate defined as an increase beyond the median value of the sum of individual genes [ Time Frame: 12 months after completion of treatment ]Determined using a CLIA Nanostring nCounter based profiling assay
- Number of participants with adverse events as measured by CTCAEv4.0 [ Time Frame: 12 months after completion of treatment ]Adverse events will be summarized by type, grade, and relationship to the study drug.
