Peritoneal Mesothelioma in Cats

Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
My cat has a peritoneal mesothelioma. My vet says that this pathology is very rare in cats and is studying a protocol for the chemotherapy (possibly intracavitary chemotherapy). My vet attended two dogs with cisplatin, with good results, but this drug is lethal for cats. Can you send me information about possible therapies for cats? And what do you think her prognosis is like?
Thanks
A. S.
