Treatment Clinical Trials for Pancreatic Cancer

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for pancreatic cancer treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

  • Combination Chemotherapy and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy before Surgery Followed by Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Pancreatic Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

    This phase II clinical trial studies how well combination chemotherapy and stereotactic body radiation therapy before surgery followed by combination chemotherapy works in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation and gemcitabine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, gemcitabine hydrochloride, and stereotactic body radiation therapy before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed, and giving paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation and gemcitabine hydrochloride after surgery may kill any remaining tumor cells.

(Part 2 actively enrolling) The second part will consist of a subsequent expansion of the trial to further assess safety and efficacy of SM-88 used with MPS containing the selected SM-88 RP2D from Part 1. A total of 250 subjects in the second part will be randomized 1:1 either to the SM-88 arm (125 subjects) or Physician's Choice of therapy for the Control Arm (125 subjects). Subjects should have previously received two lines of prior systemic therapy.

  • Guadecitabine and Durvalumab in Treating Patients with Advanced Liver, Pancreatic, Bile Duct, or Gallbladder Cancer

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of guadecitabine and how well it works when given together with durvalumab in treating patients with liver, pancreatic, bile duct, or gallbladder cancer that has spread to other places in the body.

    This pilot phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein when given together with standard chemotherapy regimens in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced) or have spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein, paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, gemcitabine hydrochloride, docetaxel, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

  • Capecitabine and Radiation Therapy with or without Pembrolizumab in Treating Participants with Resectable or Borderline Resectable Pancreatic Cancer

    The phase Ib / II trial studies the side effects of capecitabine and radiation therapy with or without pembrolizumab in treating participants with pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high energy x rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not known if giving capecitabine and radiation therapy with or without pembrolizumab will work better in treating participants with pancreatic cancer.

  • Anetumab Ravtansine with Nivolumab, Ipilimumab and Gemcitabine Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Mesothelin Positive Advanced Pancreatic Cancer

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of anetumab ravtansine when given together with nivolumab, ipilimumab and gemcitabine hydrochloride in treating patients with mesothelin positive pancreatic cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Anetumab ravtansine is a monoclonal antibody, called anetumab ravtansine, linked to a chemotherapy drug called DM4. Anetumab attaches to mesothelin positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers DM4 to kill them. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Gemcitabine hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving anetumab ravtansine together with nivolumab, ipilimumab, and gemcitabine hydrochloride may work better in treating patients with pancreatic cancer.

  • A Study of RGX-202-01 With or Without FOLFIRI in Patients With Advanced Gastrointestinal Malignancies

    RGX-202-001 is a Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study of RGX-202-01 as a single agent and in combination with FOLFIRI. RGX-202-01 is a small molecule inhibitor of the creatine transporter SLC6a8, a novel metabolic target that drives gastrointestinal cancer progression. During the dose escalation stage, multiple doses of orally administered RGX-202-01 with or without FOLFIRI (single agent or combination therapy) will be evaluated in patients with advanced gastrointestinal tumors (i.e., locally advanced and unresectable, or metastatic) who have had PD on available standard systemic therapies or for which there are no standard systemic therapies of relevant clinical impact. In the expansion stage of the study, additional patients with advanced gastrointestinal malignancies selected by expression of the creatine kinase B (CKB) biomarker, gastric / gastroesophageal cancer, or colorectal cancer (CRC) will be treated at the MTD (or maximum tested dose if no MTD is identified, or dose below the MTD if there is evidence suggesting a more favorable risk / benefit profile). This stage will provide further characterization of the safety, efficacy, PK, and pharmacodynamics of RGX-202-01 as a single agent (selected by expression of the CKB biomarker) and in combination with FOLFIRI (gastric / gastroesophageal cancer and CRC).
