Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Biological: activated T lymphocyte
    intravenous dripping of 200 ml (109~2 1010 lymphocytes/60 kg adult) for 1 hour.
    Other Name: Immuncell-LC
Detailed Description:

This was designed as a single-center, single group clinical trial, and subjects include patients with pathologically-confirmed Gemcitabine refractory advanced pancreatic cancer.

If subjects agree to participate in the clinical trial by signing a written consent, only appropriate subjects, who meet the criteria on the examinations and tests, will undergo this clinical trial. To participate in the clinical trial, subject's blood of more than 60 ml should be withdrawn to make a study drug at least 2 weeks before administration. Subjects should visit to hospital according to the protocol and receive a study drug. Therapeutic response rate, overall survival rate, time to progression and the quality of life should be investigated.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject who signed the written consent form by themselves, protectors or legal representatives prior to the clinical trial after the person in charge explained fully about objectives, procedure and the characteristics of the study drug.
  2. Patient aged 18 to 75
  3. Patient with pathologically-confirmed, advanced pancreatic cancer
  4. ECOG scale (ECOG-PS) ≤2 (Appendix 4. Performance status scale/score)
  5. Patient with anticipated survival period of more than 3 months
  6. Patient with progressed disease after Gemcitabine-based primary anti-cancer chemotherapy
  7. Patient whose blood test, renal function test and liver function test results meet the following conditions.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient with the medical history of immunodeficiency or autoimmune disease that could be aggravated by immunotherapy (examples: rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, multiple sclerosis, adolescent Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, etc.)
  2. Confirmed immunodeficient patient
  3. Patient with the history of cancer other than skin cancer, local prostate cancer or carcinoma in situ of cervix within the last 5 years of the start of study
  4. Patient who has received systemic anti-angiogenic agent
  5. Patient who has received a chemotherapy other than Gemcitabine based chemotherapy
  6. Obvious myocardial failure or uncontrolled arterial hypertension
  7. Patient who has experienced serious allergy (judged by the investigator)
  8. Patient with serious psychological disease (judged by the investigator)
  9. Pregnant woman, breast-feeding woman or woman who want to be pregnant during the trial period
  10. Patient who has participated in another clinical trial within the last 4 weeks of the start of study
