Isolated thoracic perfusion with chemofiltration for progressive malignant pleural mesothelioma

OncoTargets and Therapy 2017 June [Link] Aigner KR, Selak E, Gailhofer S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Therapy of malignant pleural mesothelioma and especially the adequate role of surgery in this context remain the subject of controversial discussions. Radical surgery in particular, which is associated with substantial morbidity, failed to translate into a definite survival advantage. We report […]

Radio-immunotherapy and chemo-immunotherapy as a novel treatment paradigm in malignant pleural mesothelioma

Translational Lung Cancer 2017 June [Link] Wu L, de Perrot M Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive neoplasm with poor outcome. Novel radical radiation techniques using intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) have become an important component of therapy in mesothelioma. Immunotherapy also provides new therapeutic options. However, how best to integrate immunotherapy with […]

Immunotherapy and radiation therapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Translational Lung Cancer Research 2017 April [Link] Alley EW, Katz SI, Cengel KA, Simone CB Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a particularly aggressive thoracic malignancy with limited survival following combination chemotherapy. As a result, there has been increased interested in immunotherapy for mesothelioma, both in the first-line and salvage settings. Early investigations of interleukin-2 […]
