Induction Chemotherapy With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin Followed by CCRT for Unresectable Pancreatic Carcinoma
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||pancreatic carcinoma non-resectable|
|Treatment||induction chemotherapy followed by ccrt|
|Sponsor||National Cancer Center, Korea|
|Start date||March 2012|
|End date||August 2017|
|Trial size||34 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01593475, NCCCTS-11-567|
This phase II trial chose the induction chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin followed by Chemoradiotherapy (CRT) with gemcitabine to optimize the treatment for pancreas cancer patients with locally advanced disease and the purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of induction CT with gemcitabine and cisplatin followed by CRT for unresectable pancreatic carcinoma.
|Endpoint classification||safety/efficacy study|
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
feasibility and compliance
time frame: Up to 1 year
time frame: Up to 3years until study closed
time frame: participants will be followed for the duration of disease free, an expected average of 9 months
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
- Pathologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the pancreas

|Official title||A Phase II Study of Induction Chemotherapy With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin Followed by Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy for Locally Advanced Unresectable Pancreatic Carcinoma|
|Principal investigator||Woo Jin Lee, Ph.D|
|Description||The primary endpoint is feasibility and compliance of induction chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin followed by CRT for locally advanced unresectable pancreatic cancer. Previous studies showed that approximately 20% of patients with locally advanced disease developed the early distant metastasis.[6, 7] Thus, it will be expected that at least 80% of total patients will be eligible for induction chemotherapy after completion of induction chemotherapy. An experimental arm that result a compliance of 80% would merit further study. If the true compliance rate of the patients who will eligible for CRT is ≤ 60%, null hypothesis will be rejected with a power of 80% and a type I error of 5%. Thus, the required number of evaluable patients is 24. Considering the 10% follow-up loss and 20% distant metastasis rate after induction chemotherapy, a total of 34 eligible patients will be enrolled.|
