  Purpose

Erlotinib is an orally available, reversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Association of chemoresistance with the activity of certain tyrosine kinases (e.g. ErbB-1 and Src) has been described for pancreatic cancer and makes a strong case for combining gemcitabine with tyrosine kinase inhibitors. In a phase III trial, the addition of erlotinib to gemcitabine improved survival compared with gemcitabine alone in advanced pancreatic cancer (MJ Moor et al). Also, gemcitabine in combination with oxaliplatin is superior to gemcitabine alone in terms of progression free survival and response rate in one phase III trial (Louvet et al). Taken together, combining erlotinib with gemcitabine and oxaliplatin may further improve the overall survival and clinical benefit of advanced pancreatic cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rate [ Time Frame: 24 months (01/2011 and end of study 01/2013) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Responses are assessed every 2 cycles according to RECIST; the imaging tests are performed in a week preceding the corresponding cycles, and can also be repeated at any other time if clinically indicated, for example, to confirm disease progression. At any time, patients with progressive disease are withdrawn.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • disease control rate(SD,PR,CR) [ Time Frame: 24 months (01/2011 and end of study 01/2013) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responses are assessed every 2 cycles according to RECIST; the imaging tests are performed in a week preceding the corresponding cycles, and can also be repeated at any other time if clinically indicated, for example, to confirm disease progression. At any time, patients with progressive disease are withdrawn.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 33
