NCT01774643

  Purpose

This is a feasibility study to perform image-guided liver biopsies in 25 patients who have pancreatic cancer with liver metastasis (cancer in the pancreas that has spread to the liver). This will contribute with samples for the bio-bank (bank of tumors) and develop xenografts (human tumors growing in mice) for further analysis of genes.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with adverse events due to biopsies [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of successful xenografts [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of similiarities and differences between original patient tumor sample with xenograft sample [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Engraftment rate compared to clinical data (response to treatment, disease-free survival, overall survival) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Tumor tissue


Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: January 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Pancreatic cancer with liver metastases
Tumor tissue biopsy, blood samples

Detailed Description:

This study might bring a better understanding of the metastatic pancreatic cancer and evaluate the differences between the metastatic and the primary pancreatic cancer (the type that does not have metastasis).
