The proposed study is designed to examine the effects of AZD0171 and durvalumab in combination with standard-of-care chemotherapy in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).

Official Title

A Phase II Study to Evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Clinical Activity of AZD0171 in Combination With Durvalumab and Chemotherapy in Participants With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumours


This is a Phase II, open-label, single arm, multicentre study to assess the safety, preliminary antitumour activity, immunogenicity, pharmacodynamics (PD), and pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD0171 in combination with durvalumab and standard-of-care chemotherapy (gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel) in participants with first line (1L) metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (mPDAC).

All participants will be treated until progressive disease or unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of consent or another discontinuation criterion is met.


Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumours, AZD0171, Durvalumab, Gemcitabine, Nab-paclitaxel, Leukaemia inhibitory factor, Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, Immunotherapy, Neoplasms, Paclitaxel, AZD0171 + Durvalumab + chemotherapy
