Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental single arm

Chemotherapy using the FOLFIRINOX regimen will be given every 2 weeks for a total of 12 cycles. FOLFIRINOX consist of:

  1. Oxaliplatin-85 mg/m2 IV Day 1
  2. Leucovorin-400 mg/m2 IV Day 1
  3. Irinotecan-180 mg/m2 IV Day 1
  4. Fluorouracil (FU)-400 mg/m2 IV bolus Day 1
  5. Fluorouracil 2400 mg/m2 infused over 46 hours starting day 1
Combination Product: FOLFIRINOX
combination chemotherapy using Oxaliplatin, Irinotecan, Leucovorin and Fluorouracil, given every 15 days for a total of 12 cycles

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response rate [ Time Frame: 3 year ]
    Evaluate the response rate using RECIST 1.1 criteria

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. progression free survival [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    calculated from day 1 of chemotherapy till either progression, death or date of last follow up whichever comes first

  2. overall survival [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    calculated from day 1 of chemotherapy till either death or date of last follow up whichever comes first
