Additional Information

Official title A Phase II Study of Gemcitabine and Nanoparticle-Bound Paclitaxel as Second Line Therapy in Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer
Principal investigator Michael Pishvaian, MD PhD
Description This is an open label Phase II study to evaluate the clinical activity of the combination of gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel (abraxane) as second line treatment in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer who have received non-gemcitabine-based chemotherapy in the first line setting. All patients will receive both drugs on Days 1, 8, 15 every 28 days. The hypothesis is that this combination will have a 4-month progression free survival of 70% or higher.
