Research Study Summary

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Pancreatic Cancer, Metastatic

Research Study Title

A Randomized, Open-label Phase 2 Study of Nanoliposomal Irinotecan (Nal-IRI)-Containing Regimens Versus Nab-Paclitaxel Plus Gemcitabine in Patients With Previously Untreated, Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma


This is an open-label, phase 2 comparative study to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of nal-IRI in combination with other anticancer therapies, compared to nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine, in patients with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma who have not received prior chemotherapy. This study will assess the following regimens:

  • nal-IRI + 5-FU/LV + oxaliplatin

  • nal-IRI + 5-FU/LV

  • nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine

The study will be conducted in two parts:

  1. a safety run-in of the nal-IRI + 5-FU/LV + oxaliplatin regimen, and

  2. a randomized, efficacy study of nal-IRI + 5-FU/LV + oxaliplatin, and nal-IRI + 5-FU/LV, versus nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine.
