The aim of this phase II study is to assess the efficacy and safety of sequentially integrated treatment of FOLFIRINOX or Gemcitabine-Abraxane and SBRT in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer.
The aim of this prospective mono-institutional phase II study is to assess the efficacy and safety of sequentially integrated treatment of FOLFIRINOX or Gemcitabine-Abraxane and SBRT with a total dose of 54 Gy in 6 fractions of 9 Gy /fractions in patients with locally unresectable pancreatic cancer.
Primary endpoint is to evaluate overall survival (OS); the overall survival time will be calculated from the start of chemotherapy to death. Secondary end points are to evaluate acute and late toxicities, freedom from local progression (FFLP) and progression free-survival (PFS). Acute and late toxicities will be scored according to the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v3.0. Local progression will be defined according to RECIST criteria. Time to toxicity and time to local or distant progression will be defined from the start of chemotherapy.
Technical success will be defined as the ability to implant at least 2 fiducials in the tumor area. Migration will be defined as a change in inter-fiducial distance. Clinical success will be defined as the ability to guide the application of SBRT by using the fiducials. Any adverse event will be recorded (acute pancreatitis, clinically relevant upper GI bleeding requiring blood transfusion, abscesses in the area of the fiducials, sepsis).

The purpose of this study is to find out the maximum dose of SBRT that can be safely given after chemotherapy for treatment of pancreatic cancer that cannot be removed surgically.
To assess the freedom from local failure at 12 months after Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT). Also to assess the safety, efficacy and feasibility of SBRT in the treatment of high risk...
This study is to investigate whether neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus SBRT results in better outcomes compared with neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone and also compare the efficacy of gemcitabine...
The purpose of this study is to research the effects of delivering full-dose neoadjuvant multi-agent chemotherapy (folfirinox) followed by stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in pat...
When gemcitabine based chemo and fluorouracil based chemo regimes are failed in late-stage or recurrent pancreatic cancer patients, there is no alternative options. Anti-PD-1 antibody has ...
The purpose of the present multicentric study was to review stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) with or without chemotherapy (CHT) experience in locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Endpoints ...
To evaluate the role of Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) as a local ablative treatment (LAT) in oligometastatic pancreatic cancer.
Locally advanced pancreatic head cancer remains an aggressive malignancy with a low likelihood of achieving resectability after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Resection is even more difficult if anatomical...
FOLFIRINOX (FFX) or abraxane plus gemcitabine (AG)-based chemotherapy is used widely as firstline treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer. However, their use in the elderly is discouraged becaus...
Hereditary pancreatic cancer continues to pose challenges to providers, as well as to patients and their families. Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis, and individuals with family histories of panc...
A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Vinblastine derivative with antineoplastic activity against CANCER. Major side effects are myelosuppression and neurotoxicity. Vindesine is used extensively in chemotherapy protocols (ANTINEOPLASTIC COMBINED CHEMOTHERAPY PROTOCOLS).
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
