This is a single-arm, open label, two stage, phase II study of dovitinib in patients with advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM). The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential efficacy of dovitinib in the second- or third-line treatment of MPM using progression free survival (PFS).
Advanced Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma
||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase II Study of Single-agent DOVitinib in Advanced Malignant PlEural Mesothelioma Which Has Progressed Following Prior Platinum-Antifolate Chemotherapy
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: PFS measured from the time from the first date of treatment with dovitinib until the date of disease progression or date of death or last contact. Assessments every 8 weeks for disease progression for up to 2.5 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Response measured from the time from the first date of treatment with dovitinib. Patients should be re-evaluated for response every 8 weeks for up to 2.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
ORR using the modified RECIST criteria for MPM. This is defined as the number of patients with a complete or partial response divided by the number of patients who receive at least one dose of dovitinib.
- Stable disease rate/disease control rate (ORR + SD) [ Time Frame: Stable disease measured from the time from the first date of treatment with dovitinib until the criteria for disease progression are met. Assessments every 8 weeks for disease progression for up to 2.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
ORR + SD is defined as the number of patients with an objective response or stable disease using the modified RECIST criteria for MPM, divided by the number of patients who receive at least one dose of dovitinib
- Duration of response / stable disease [ Time Frame: Duration of overall response measured from the time measurement criteria are met for CR or PR until the first date that recurrent or progressive disease is objectively documented. Assessments every 8 weeks for disease progression for up to 2.5 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The duration of overall CR measured from the time measurement criteria are first met for CR until the first date that recurrent disease is objectively documented.
- Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: OS measured from the time from the first date of treatment with dovitinib to the date of death or last contact. Patients will be followed up for survival for up to 1 year after disease progression. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Biomarker assessments using tissue and plasma samples, and imaging. [ Time Frame: Archival tissue sample at Baseline; Plasma samples at Baseline, Cycle 1 Week 2, Cycle 2 Week 1, Cycle 3 Week 1; Chest MRI at Baseline and Day 15. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biomarkers analysis will include analysis of archival tissue and plasma sample (wherever safely possible). In addition, pharmacodynamic effects will be measured by diffusion weighted MRI.
- Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: From the time from the first date of treatment with dovitinib to the date the patient completes the study; patients will be followed up for survival for up to 1 year after disease progression. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
All patients will be evaluated for toxicity. Frequency and severity of adverse events will be tabulated using counts and proportions detailing frequently occurring, serious and severe events of interest.

- Prior use of angiogenesis inhibitors.
- Patients with another primary malignancy within 3 years prior to starting study treatment, with the exception of adequately treated cancer such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or non-melanomatous skin cancer or in-situ carcinoma of the uterine cervix. (Exception, patients with localized prostate cancer treated within the last 2 years and currently on hormonal therapy).
- Patients with a history of pulmonary embolism (PE), or untreated deep venous thrombosis (DVT) ≤ 6 months prior to starting study drug.
Cirrhosis of the liver or known hepatitis B or C infection that is either acute or is considered chronic because the virus did not become undetectable:
- Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection: acute or chronic infection as depicted by a positive HCV RNA testing (note: in a patient with known anti-HCV but with a negative test for HCV RNA, re-testing for HCV RNA 4-6 months later is requested to confirm the resolution of HCV infection)
- Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection: acute infection (HBsAg+ with or without HBeAg+ or detectable serum HBV DNA), HBV carriers as evidence by ongoing presence of HBsAg and detectable serum HBV DNA levels
- Known diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (HIV testing is not mandatory).
- Patients who are currently receiving antiplatelet therapy of prasugrel or clopidogrel, or full dose anticoagulation treatment with therapeutic doses of warfarin. However, treatment with low doses of warfarin (e.g., ≤ 2 mg/day) or locally accepted low doses of acetylsalicylic acid (up to 100 mg daily) to prevent cardiovascular events or strokes is allowed. Required use of therapeutic doses of coumarin-derivative anticoagulants such as warfarin, although doses of up to 2mg daily are permitted for prophylaxis of thrombosis. Note: Low molecular weight heparin is permitted provided the patient's PT INR is < 1.5.
