This research study is studying a pair of immunotherapies as a possible treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma.
The drugs involved in this study are:
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Mesothelioma||Drug: Tremelimumab Drug: Durvalumab||Phase 2|
This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied.
The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved durvalumab or tremelimumab as a treatment for any disease.
In this research study, the investigators are studying if the study drug can help your cancer compared to the usual approach to treating malignant pleural mesothelioma . Durvalumab is a drug that blocks a protein often produced by cancer cells or surrounding cells to suppress immune cells from attacking cancer cells. Tremelimumab blocks a receptor on immune cells that normally suppresses immune attack. These two study drugs have been used alone for mesothelioma but the combination has not yet been tested for mesothelioma. These two drugs have been used for cancers such as melanoma and have been effective than using either drug alone.

|Official Title:||A Phase 2 Study of Durvalumab in Combination With Tremelimumab in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma|

Experimental: Tremelimumab + Durvalumab
Subjects will receive durvalumab and tremelimumab both via intravenous infusion once per day for every 28 day cycles (+ 7 days). Participants will receive tremelimumab for up to 4 cycles (4 doses). Beginning with cycle 5 day 1, subjects will continue to receive durvalumab alone, until clinical or radiological progression.
Tremelimumab blocks a receptor on immune cells that normally suppresses immune attack.
