  Purpose

This study is a multicentre, open label, non-comparative, two stage phase II trial to assess the activity of ZD1839 (IRESSA) in patients with malignant mesothelioma. Patients will receive trial treatment as first-line therapy, administered continuously once daily until the completion of six 4-week cycles of treatment, disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of consent. Patients continuing to show evidence of response, disease stabilization or clinical benefit from ZD1839 may continue to receive therapy beyond completion of the trail.

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the activity of ZD1839 in patients with malignant mesothelioma by estimating the objective response rate (CR and PR) at trial closure [ Time Frame: Proportion of patients responding at trial closure, ITT population ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To further characterize the safety profile of ZD1839 at a 250mg daily dose [ Time Frame: Proportion of patients responding at trial closure, ITT population ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate PFS (progression free survival) [ Time Frame: Proportion of patients alive and progression-free at trial closure, ITT population; Median time to progression or death; Proportion of patients alive and progression-free at 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To estimate overall survival [ Time Frame: Proportion of patients alive at trial closure, ITT population; Median time to death; Proportion of patients alive at 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To estimate duration of response [ Time Frame: Median time from objective response to progression or death; only patients who responded are included in this analysis ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
