At Memorial Sloan Kettering we offer a variety of clinical trials for people with mesothelioma. While some studies are looking for genetic factors that predispose people to the disease, others are exploring ways to combine chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation to optimize outcomes. We are also conducting studies testing novel therapies.
Our high volume of patients with mesothelioma enables us to be leaders in running trials for this rare tumor type. For example, our medical oncologists led the largest international randomized trial in mesothelioma testing a drug called vorinostat, which was developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Although this trial failed to show a benefit for mesothelioma, other types of drugs are now being developed.
Our mesothelioma treatment team is experienced in selecting people who are most likely to benefit from a particular therapy, and we can help guide you through the process of enrolling in the most appropriate clinical trial.
