Gemcitabine Hydrochloride, Floxuridine, and Dexamethasone after Surgery in Treating Patients with Liver Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, peripheral cholangiocarcinoma, cholangiolar carcinoma, cholangiocellular carcinoma) (icc)|
|Treatments||liver resection and placement of hepatic artery infusion pump, floxuridine, dexamethasone, gemcitabine|
|Sponsor||Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center|
|Collaborator||Ohio State University|
|Start date||September 2013|
|End date||September 2017|
|Trial size||8 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01938729, 13-148|
This is a Phase I study, which means we want to find out what effects, good and/or bad, this combination of drugs may have on the patient and the liver cancer at different dose levels. All patients will have an operation to remove tumors in the liver and may have a pump placed in their abdomen.
On this study, both drugs given have been used in other patients for treatment of cholangiocarcinoma and other gastrointestinal cancers. Both drugs are approved by the food and drug administration (FDA) for treatment of liver cancer, but the two drugs have only been combined in a few patients.
That means that in this trial we also want to find out if this combination is safe.
The study will also evaluate if this treatment works in delaying or stopping the cancer from coming back after surgery.
