Dasatinib in Treating Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer
Dasatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. This phase II trial is studying how well dasatinib works in treating patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer
Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreas
Recurrent Pancreatic Cancer
Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer
Procedure: laboratory biomarker analysis
Procedure: physiologic testing
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Dasatinib (BMS-354825) in Patients With Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreas|
- Median overall survival [ Time Frame: From the date of onset of treatment to the date of death and to the date of last follow-up for those still alive, assessed up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The probability of overall survival will be estimated by Kaplan-Meier method. The estimated median survival will be compared to those reported in the literature.
- Objective response rate (complete response, partial response, or stable disease), evaluated using the new international criteria proposed by the RECIST Committee [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to progression [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Gait speed, determined by a 4 meter walk along a properly measured stretch of hallway while being timed with a stopwatch [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

I. Determine the overall survival, including median survival, of patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas treated with dasatinib.
I. Determine the effects of this drug on quantities of circulating tumor cells in these patients.
II. Determine the time to progression in patients treated with this drug. III. Determine pre- and post-drug fat-free mass and gait speed in patients treated with this drug.
IV. Evaluate the toxicity of this drug in these patients. V. Evaluate objective response rate in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive oral dasatinib twice daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients undergo blood collection at baseline and during days 25-31. Samples are analyzed for quantification of circulating tumor cells. Patients also undergo analysis of fat-free mass and gait speed at baseline and at 1, 2, and 6 months.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
