Clinical Trials Using Pemetrexed Disodium
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Pemetrexed Disodium. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Heated Pemetrexed Disodium and Cisplatin during Surgery in Treating Participants with Pleural Malignant Mesothelioma
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of heated pemetrexed disodium when given together with heated cisplatin during surgeries such as extrapleural pneumonectomy or pleural decortication in treating participants with pleural malignant mesothelioma. Pemetrexed disodium may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Heating pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin and infusing them directly into the chest during the surgery may kill more tumor cells.

An Investigational Immuno-therapy Trial of Nivolumab, or Nivolumab Plus Ipilimumab, or Nivolumab Plus Platinum-doublet Chemotherapy, Compared to Platinum Doublet Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
The purpose of this study is to show that Nivolumab, or Nivolumab plus Ipilimumab, or Nivolumab plus Platinum-Doublet Chemotherapy improves progression free survival and / or overall survival compared with chemotherapy in patients with advanced lung cancer.

A Safety and Efficacy Study of INC280 Alone, and in Combination With Erlotinib, Compared to Chemotherapy, in Advanced / Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Patients With EGFR Mutation and cMET Amplification
The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of INC280 in combination with erlotinib in the Phase Ib of this study, and to assess the anti-tumor activity and safety of INC280 alone, and in combination with erlotinib, versus platinum with pemetrexed in the Phase II of this study, in adult patients with EGFR mutated, cMET amplified, advanced / metastatic non-small cell lung cancer with acquired resistance to prior EGFR TKI.

A Dose Escalation Study of L-DOS47 in Recurrent or Metastatic Non-Squamous NSCLC
The primary purpose of this research study is to evaluate how safe, how well tolerated and how effective a range of doses of L-DOS47 in combination with standard doublet therapy of pemetrexed / carboplatin in patients with Stage IV (TNM M1a and M1b) recurrent or metastatic non-squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Chemotherapy and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Stage IV Non-small Lung Cancer Previously Treated with PD-1 or PD-L1 Inhibitor
This phase II trial studies how well chemotherapy and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with stage IV non-small lung cancer previously treated with PD-1 or PD-L1 Inhibitor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, docetaxel, or pemetrexed disodium, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving chemotherapy and pembrolizumab may work better in controlling cancer and treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma That Can Be Removed by Surgery
This pilot phase I trial studies pembrolizumab in treating patients malignant pleural mesothelioma that can be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Biomarker-Driven Therapy and Immunotherapy in Screening Participants with Recurrent or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (The Expanded Lung-MAP Screening Trial)
This expansion of the screening and multi-sub-study Lung-MAP trial is motivated by the changing landscape due to progress in the development of immunotherapies. The Lung-MAP trial was originally opened in June of 2014 for second-line treatment of participants with stage IV squamous lung cancer or squamous lung cancer that has come back (recurrent). The trial was amended to allow all participants with previously-treated stage IV or recurrent squamous lung cancer in 2015. The study is now expanding to allow participants with all types of previously-treated stage IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer. The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned in order to compare new targeted cancer therapy designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes “non-match” sub-studies which will include all screened participants not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies.
