Efficacy [ Time Frame: 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Evaluation of short term efficacy based upon tumor evaluation and symptomatic response as defined by:

  • imaging will be used to evaluate changes in tumor size in addition to evaluating the completeness of ablation,
  • tumor evaluation by evaluating changes in CA-19-9 marker,
  • symptomatic changes of quality of life questionnaires,
  • physician assessment of the performance status of the subject,
  • pain assessment and subject analgesic consumption,
  • assessment of tumor for downstaging to resectability at the time of imaging

NanoKnife Low Energy Direct Current (LEDC) System in Subjects With Locally Advanced Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer
A Safety Evaluation of the NanoKnife Low Energy Direct Current (LEDC) System in Subjects With Locally Advanced Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer - A Pilot Study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the NanoKnife Low Energy Direct Current (LEDC) System when used to treat unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Safety will be reviewed by means of analysis of adverse events, including serious adverse events, laboratory data, physician exam findings, and vital signs.
