    Pleural Mesothelioma not responding to pemetrexed

    Hi all,
    My father was diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma five months ago and placed on pemetrexed combo chemo.
    After three cycles the ct scan showed no response so we are currently waiting to hear from the drs what the next treatment will be. Anyone out there no of any good emerging treatments? Have heard Keytruda is working for some, am preparing him a healthy diet and he said he feels okay most days. Hoping the next treatment will shrink the cancer. Such a terrible illness and so unfair.
