Official Title

Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy Using Exquisite Systemic Therapy


The SMARTEST trial is a phase II non-blinded randomized trial designed to evaluate the benefit of low dose cyclophosphamide in sequential combination with sub-ablative radiation (Arm A) versus sub-ablative radiation alone (Arm B) before surgery as well as the safety and efficacy of consolidation tremelimumab-durvalumab for eligible patients after surgery in both arms.
