Lenalidomide With Gemcitabine in Treatment of Untreated Advanced Carcinoma of the Pancreas
To evaluate the 6-month overall survival, safety, and tolerability of lenalidomide in combination with standard gemcitabine as first-line treatment for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer.

|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of Lenalidomide in Combination With Gemcitabine in Subjects With Untreated Advanced Carcinoma of the Pancreas|
- Six-Month Overall Survival (OS) Probability, the Percentage of Patients Estimated to be Alive Six Months After Beginning Protocol Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The percentage of patients who were alive 6 months after beginning treatment
- Progression Free Survival (PFS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Worsening of Their Disease [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The length of time, in months, that patients were alive from their first date of protocol treatment until worsening of their disease
- Overall Survival (OS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Death [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Length of time, in months, that patients were alive from their first date of protocol treatment until death

The study began with a lead-in portion to confirm the tolerability of lenalidomide (25mg PO days 1-21) in combination with gemcitabine (1000mg/m2 IV days 1, 8, and 15).
After completion of the lead-in phase, all subsequent patients received lenalidomide 25mg PO on days 1-21 and gemcitabine 1000mg/m2 IV days 1, 8, and 15 of 28-day treatment cycles. Patients were instructed to take lenalidomide at approximately the same time each morning. Patients were permitted to continue treatment until disease progression or intolerable toxicity occurred.
The starting dose of lenalidomide for the lead-in portion will be 25 mg orally daily on Days 1-21, followed by a 7-day rest period (28-day cycle). If the 25-mg dose of lenalidomide is found to be intolerable or unsafe (i.e., if more than one of the 6 patients experience a DLT), then the dose will be reduced to 20 mg orally daily, and 6 additional patients will be treated. All patients will receive lenalidomide at the confirmed tolerable dose (either 25 mg or 20 mg given orally daily on Days 1-21 of a 28-day cycle) until disease progression. If the 20-mg daily dose is found to be intolerable or unsafe, enrollment will be put on hold.

Gemcitabine 1000 mg/m2 IV will be administered on Days 1, 8, and 15 for a 28-day cycle.

Because the activity of lenalidomide addresses numerous mechanisms of carcinoma growth inhibition - including, but not limited to anti-angiogenesis - lenalidomide is being evaluated as part of induction chemotherapy regimens for solid tumors. This phase II study in previously untreated metastatic pancreatic cancer is designed to establish and test the appropriate lenalidomide dose and regimen in combination with gemcitabine.
