Mutations involving BRCA1-Associated Protein-1 (BAP1), a structure involved in epigenetic regulation of gene expression, DNA repair and cellular energetics, have emerged as common mutations in malignant mesotheliomas. These mutations also predispose individuals to melanomas, as well as lung, renal, gastric, breast and hepatobiliary carcinomas. A clinical trial led by David S. Schrump, M.D., M.B.A., FACS, Chief and Senior Investigator in the Thoracic Surgery Branch, is researching a combination drug therapy for BRCA1-Associated Protein-1 mutations.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
