Criteria

Primary Inclusion Criteria:

  • Confirmed diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) with the following characteristics: unresectable disease (or otherwise not a candidate for curative surgery); epithelial type or biphasic (mixed) type with low sarcomatous content.
  • Measurable disease at Screening by computed tomography (CT)(or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]).
  • KPS of greater than or equal to 70% at Screening.
  • Life expectancy of at least 3 months

Primary Exclusion Criteria:

  • Sarcomatous type of mesothelioma
  • Prior systemic therapy or radiotherapy for MPM; local radiotherapy for symptom control (ie, non-curative intent) is permitted.
  • Confirmed presence of CNS tumor involvement.
  • Evidence of other active malignancy requiring treatment.
