      MPM median overall survival (OS) did not exceed 13 months with pemetrexed-platinum doublet, with virtually no surviving patients at 5 years. Vascular endothelial growth factor is a potent mitogen for MPM cells.

      In this French multicenter randomized phase 3 trial, eligible patients had unresectable, histologically proved MPM, age < 76, no prior chemo, PS 0-2, no thrombosis, nor bleeding. Randomized patients (1:1) received pem 500 mg/m2, CDDP 75 mg/m2 at D1, with (arm B) or without bevacizumab (arm A), 15 mg/kg Q21D, for 6 cycles. Arm B non-progressive patients received bevacizumab maintenance therapy until progression or toxicity. Primary endpoint was OS. 445 patients were to be randomized, and 385 events observed, to show a significant OS improvement, with 80% statistical power, 5% a-risk.

      From Feb. 2008 to Jan. 2014, 448 patients were included in 73 centers. Males: 75.4%, median age: 65.7 years (range 34.7-75.9), PS 0-1: 96.7%. The IDMC recommended a second interim analysis after 85% of events. On 01-Jan-2015, the duration since last news was < 30 days in 105 out of 106 still living patients. Overall survival was significantly longer in the experimental arm (median: 18.8 months, 95%CI[15.9-22.6] vs. 16.1 months, 95%CI[14.0-17.9] for the reference arm, (adj.HR = 0.76, 95%CI[0.61; 0.94], p = 0.012). With only 46/448 non-progressive patients at the date of analysis, median PFS was 9.6 months, 95%CI[8.5-10.6] in bevacizumab arm vs. 7.5 months, 95%CI[6.8-8.1] (adj.HR = 0.62, 95%CI[0.50-0.75], p < 0.0001). G3-4 hematological toxicities did not significantly differ in the two arms (49.5% vs. 47.3%). Significantly more G3 proteinuria (0.0 vs. 3.1%), G3 hypertension (0.0 vs. 23%), G3-4 arterial thrombotic events (0.0 vs. 2.7%) were observed in bevacizumab arm. QOL and exploratory biomarkers studies will be also presented at time of the meeting.

      Bevacizumab addition to pemetrexed/cis-platin provides a significantly longer survival in pts with MPM, with acceptable toxicity, making this triplet a new treatment paradigm.
