This is a phase Ⅱ Trial of Postoperative Adjuvant Gemcitabine and Cisplatin Chemotherapy Followed by Chemoradiation With Gemcitabine in Patients With Resected Pancreatic Cancer.
Condition or disease
Drug: gemcitabine and cisplatin
The primary study objective is to evaluate recurrence/metastasis free survival at 12 months with postoperative adjuvant treatment incorporating gemcitabine plus cisplatin chemotherapy followed by chemoradiation with gemcitabine followed by maintenance chemotherapy with gemcitabine.
The study consists of three phases; Induction chemotherapy phase:Starting 4~8 weeks after R0 resection of pancreatic cancer. Gemcitabine: 1200mg/㎡ (Day 1, 8), cisplatin 60mg/㎡ (Day 1) every 3 weeks for 2 cycles. Chemoradiotherapy phase: Starting 1-2 weeks after completion of induction chemotherapy (within 5 weeks after D1 of 2nd cycle of induction chemotherapy), no later than 16 weeks after operation. Gemcitabine 300mg/㎡ weekly for 5 weeks throughout RT period. Radiotherapy: 50.4Gy at 1.8Gy/Fx, for 28 Fx (Field reduction at 45Gy) for 5.5 pweeks. Maintenance chemotherapy phase: Within 4 weeks after completion of chemoradiotheray, no later than 6 weeks after completion of chemoradiotherapy Gemcitabine: 1200mg/㎡ (Day 1, 8) every 3 weeks, for 4 cycles
