Brief Summary:
This research study is evaluating a new method for determining stage and prognosis of individuals with malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mesothelioma Other: MPT Test Other: CLDN15/VIM Test Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this research study is to test a new method for determining the stage and prognosis of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. Currently, it is not possible to accurately determine cancer stage prior to surgery or another treatment. This new method may allow doctors to better classify cancer stage and give a better estimate for prognosis prior to surgery or another treatment.

In this research study, the investigators would like to use biopsied tissue to study certain characteristics that will help test the new method for determining cancer stage and estimating prognosis.

In this research study, the investigators are...

  • Obtaining pleural specimens at the time of routine diagnostic biopsy during the participant's standard treatment.
  • Storing your biopsied tissue
  • Studying the tissue to determine if the new method of staging and prognosis is accurate and valid

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MRiS
  • The specimens to be collected will include at least five pleural biopsy samples
  • MPT test and the CLDN15/VIM test will be performed
Other: MPT Test
molecular expression tests at the RNA level using approximately 7 or more genes with RTPCR, nanostring or similar platforms

Other: CLDN15/VIM Test
molecular expression tests at the RNA level using approximately 7 or more genes with RTPCR, nanostring or similar platforms




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pre-treatment Prognostic Algorithm Validation [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    The primary outcome will be to prospectively validate a pre-treatment prognostic algorithm to predict survival for MPM patients.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of Molecular Tests Base on RNA Expression [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    A secondary outcome will be to evaluate molecular tests that are based on RNA expression. Specimens will be collected to develop and test new prognostic and predictive signatures for MPM based on consensus cluster membership and other potential biomarkers.
