Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma clinical trials at UC Health
8 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • A Phase 2 Study of Cediranib in Combination With Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery, including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also block the flow of oxygen to the tumor, and may help make the tumor more sensitive to olaparib.

  • Ibrutinib Combined With Gemcitabine and Nab-Paclitaxel in Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel is a standard regimen (NCCN, Category 1) for patients with metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, further improvement in treatment is needed. Increasingly, the nature of the immune infiltrate in PDAC appears to be tumor promoting. In preclinical studies, ibrutinib treatment, presumably by reprogramming B cells, results in increased CD8+ T cells to assist in tumor control. Preclinical studies of ibrutinib plus gemcitabine show superior antitumor effects compared to gemcitabine alone in both orthotopic murine pancreatic cancer cell line grafts and in genetically engineered mouse models. Thus, the investigators propose a clinical trial of ibrutinib plus the standard gemcitabine based regimen of gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel, evaluating safety, then efficacy and including correlative studies.

  • A Phase 2, Multicenter Study of FOLFIRINOX Followed by Ipilimumab With Allogenic GM-CSF Transfected Pancreatic Tumor Vaccine in the Treatment of Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This study will enroll patients who have metastatic pancreatic cancer with stable disease on FOLFIRINOX chemotherapy. The main purpose of this study is to compare survival between patients that receive ipilimumab and a pancreatic tumor vaccine and patients who continue to receive FOLFIRINOX.

  • A SU2C Catalyst® Trial of a PD1 Inhibitor With or Without a Vitamin D Analog for the Maintenance of Pancreatic Cancer

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Chemotherapy regimens for pancreatic cancer can now stabilize a patient's cancer and/or place some patients in remission or partial remission. The challenge now is to find options for maintenance therapies that will improve survival and allow continued benefits with minimal toxicities and inconvenience to the patients. This study will determine the effects of one possible maintenance regimen. The study is being conducted to determine the effects that pembrolizumab with or without the addition of paricalcitol may have on pancreatic cancer. Half of the patients will be randomized to receive pembrolizumab + paricalcitol and half to receive pembrolizumab + placebo.

  • Comparison of chemotherapy together with experimental medicine Veliparib as in Treating Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

    “Study comparing experimental medicines in treatment of pancreatic cancer that has returned after a period of improvement.”

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well modified irinotecan hydrochloride, leucovorin calcium, fluorouracil (FOLFIRI) and veliparib as a second line of therapy work compared to FOLFIRI in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that has come back after a period of improvement (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether modified FOLFIRI and veliparib as second line therapy is more effective than FOLFIRI alone in treating metastatic pancreatic cancer.

  • S1313, PEGPH20 in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This partially randomized phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of pegylated recombinant human hyaluronidase (PEGPH20) when given together with combination chemotherapy and to see how well they work compared with combination chemotherapy alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Pegylated recombinant human hyaluronidase may help chemotherapy drugs work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leucovorin calcium, fluorouracil, irinotecan hydrochloride, and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without pegylated recombinant human hyaluronidase in treating pancreatic cancer.

  • Safety and Efficacy of APX005M With Gemcitabine and Nab-Paclitaxel With or Without Nivolumab in Patients With Previously Untreated Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The main purposes of this study are to learn how effective the study drug combinations are in treating patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The drug combinations are APX005M+Nivolumab+Gemcitabine+nab-Paclitaxel, or APX005M+Gemcitabine+nab-Paclitaxel.

  • Study of Ibrutinib vs Placebo, in Combination With Nab-paclitaxel and Gemcitabine, in the First Line Treatment of Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma (RESOLVE)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a phase 2/3 to evaluate the efficacy of ibrutinib in combination with nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine for the first line treatment of patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
