  Purpose

Primary Objectives

To assess the efficacy of the combination of gemcitabine, taxotere, and xeloda (GTX) with cisplatin in subjects with metastatic pancreatic cancer based on the progression-free survival (PFS) rate at 6 month.

Secondary Objectives

  • To assess safety and characterize toxicities of the combination of GTX with cisplatin in subjects with metastatic pancreatic cancer.
  • To estimate 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 month disease control rate (DCR), PFS, and overall survival (OS).

Study Design

This study is a single arm phase II study to assess the efficacy of the combination of GTX and cisplatin in subjects with metastatic pancreatic cancer. Approximately 28 evaluable subjects will be enrolled. Subjects will be considered efficacy evaluable if they complete at least one cycle of treatment and an assessment of progression status can be made at 6 months. Subjects who drop out of the study due to reasons other than disease progression, death, or limiting toxicity (defined in section 4.3) may be replaced. Subjects whose death is unequivocally accidental and unrelated to cancer or its treatment may also be replaced.

The study will have a safety run-in phase consisting of 6 subjects. There is no previous experience with this treatment combining GTX and cisplatin. Therefore, to ensure that the combination is safe, the first six subjects will be treated at DL1 (Table 1) and observed for limiting toxicity (defined in section 4.3) for the first 2 cycles before continuation with further accrual. If ≤ 2 limiting toxicity events occur in the first 6 patients, we will proceed with additional accrual at DL1 to complete a total of 12 patients in stage 1. If > 2 limiting toxicity events occur among the first 6 patients, we will suspend DL1 and enroll 6 patients at lower dose (DL-1). If ≤ 2 limiting toxicity events occur, we will proceed with additional accrual at DL-1 to complete a total of 12 patients in stage 1. If > 2 limiting toxicity events occur, we will suspend the study pending data review. After the safety run-in, the study will be continuously monitored for adverse events using a Bayesian toxicity monitoring rule (Section 12).

The primary endpoint will be the PFS rate at 6 month, which is defined as the proportion of subjects alive, free of disease progression at 6 months. The treatment regimen would be considered of insufficient activity for further study in this population if PFS rate at 6 months is 50% or less, and the minimum required level of efficacy that would warrant further study with the proposed regimen is a 75% PFS rate at 6 months. The study design includes interim monitoring for futility using a predictive probability approach. We will stop the study early if given the information at the interim analysis, it is unlikely that the PFS rate at 6 months will be greater than 50% if the study continues to the end (Section 12).
