Injection of Bromelain and Acetylcysteine in Combination into Recurrent Mucinous Tumor or Pseudomyxoma Peritonei: A Phase I/II International, Multi-center Study

Topic of Study: Mucinous Tumors or Pseudomyxoma Peritonei
Sponsor: Mucpharm Pty Ltd
Principal Investigator: David L Morris, MD, PhD (University of New South Wales), Armando Sardi, MD (Mercy Medical Center) 410-332-9294
Research Coordinator: Michelle Sittig, RN 410-332-9294, msittig@mdmercy.com
Coordinated Through: Department of Surgical Oncology, The Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy

This study involves patients with mucinous peritoneal tumors, including pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP), who are not candidates for cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) or other potentially beneficial surgery.

An interventional radiologist will insert a percutaneous drain. The combination drug treatment of bromelain and acetylcysteine will be injected directly into the tumor or peritoneal cavity via drain and dwell for 24 hours. The aspiration/drainage and repeat drug treatments will be delivered via this drain. The dose of the drug is dependent on the calculated tumor dimensions and volume outlined in the protocol.

The expectation is that the drug combination will dissolve the tumor, allowing it to be drained. Remaining mucinous tumor that is unable to be drained will be considered for repeat drug treatments.
