Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Understanding

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM): Overview

Pleural mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by asbestos fibers becoming embedded in the lining of the lungs. Over time, the fibers may cause inflammation and scarring. As the scarring worsens, it may develop into mesothelioma tumors. Most pleural mesothelioma patients are diagnosed with the epithelioid cell type, which is the most common. Epithelioid cells typically form in solid sheets or cord arrangements, meaning they adhere closely together and don't metastasize as quickly. They are also the most responsive to treatment. Typically, pleural mesothelioma patients with the epithelioid cell type survive 19 months.

The other cell types, sarcomatoid and biphasic, are less common and indicate a worse prognosis than epithelioid. Sarcomatoid mesothelioma doesn't respond well to treatment and metastasizes aggressively, leaving patients with an average prognosis of 8 - 10 months.

Symptoms

After asbestos exposure, it can take 10 to 50 years for pleural mesothelioma symptoms to present. Symptoms typically first present in the chest cavity and respiratory system.
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or painful breathing
  • Persistent dry or raspy cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Pain in the lower back or rib area
  • Unexplained weight loss and fatigue
  • Swelling of the face or arms
  • Night sweats or fever
  • Lumps under the skin on the chest
Diagnosis

Currently, a biopsy is the only way to verify a malignant pleural mesothelioma diagnosis. Tests like a thoracentesis or thoracoscopy may be performed to take a tissue or fluid sample for analysis. For a thoracentesis, a doctor will insert a fine needle to remove fluid buildup in the chest. A thoracoscopy is more invasive. Doctors insert a viewing tube called a thoracoscope into the chest to inspect the lungs and surrounding pleura. They can then remove a tissue sample or draw fluid for analysis. After the biopsy, a pathologist will study the cells to make a definitive diagnosis, including cell type and how the disease is expected to progress.

Treatment

Although there is no cure for mesothelioma, some patients live much longer with treatments. Combining several treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, has helped some people live for years. Surgery is controversial and limited to patients with early stage disease and good functional status. Palliative care and symptom management are essential and the control of pleural effusions is an important factor. Clinical trials offer access to new treatments such as immunotherapy.
  • In 2004, FDA approved alimta for use with cisplatin, for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma
Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Emerging Drugs

MTG201: Momotaro-Gene Inc.

MTG201 is a novel investigational gene therapy with unique dual mechanisms of action capable of addressing a range of cancers. The drug candidate leverages the company's proprietary adenoviral vector technology platform to deliver the Reduced Expression in Immortalized Cells/Dickkopf-3 gene (REIC/Dkk-3 gene) into cancer cells, where the expression of the gene has been shown to be markedly downregulated. The resulting increase in REIC/Dkk-3 gene expression in cancer cells triggers immunogenic cell death selectively in cancer cells.

At the same time, increased expression of REIC/Dkk-3 gene in normal cell components in tumor tissue promotes anti-tumor immunity by activating dendritic cells and natural killer (NK) cells while suppressing immune suppressive regulatory T cells (Tregs) and myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC). Based on these novel dual mechanisms, MTG201 is believed to be well positioned to work synergistically with checkpoint inhibitors such as nivolumab.

YS110: Kissei Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.

YS110 is a humanized, immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody directed against the extracellular domain of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (CD26; DPP4; DPP IV), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon administration of anti-CD26 monoclonal antibody YS110, this antibody targets and binds to CD26 expressed on tumor cells. This inhibits CD26 activity and causes internalization of CD26-YS110. This leads to cell cycle arrest, lysis and inhibition of growth in CD26-positive tumor cells. YS110 also induces antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) against CD26-expressing tumor cells. CD26, a 110-kDa, type II transmembrane glycoprotein, is overexpressed in a variety of cancer cell types while absent in normal, healthy cells and plays a key role in tumor cell growth, migration, invasion and survival. It also plays a major role in the regulation of T-cell activity.
