Ciprofloxacin, Metronidazole, and Pembrolizumab before Surgery in Treating Patients with Stage I-II Pancreatic Cancer
This phase IV trial studies how well ciprofloxacin, metronidazole, and pembrolizumab before surgery work in treating patients with stage I-II pancreatic cancer. Ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are commonly prescribed antibiotics for treating different bacterial infections. They work by decreasing and / or eliminating bacteria in the body, thereby altering patients' microbiome (the organisms in the body). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. The purpose of this study is to see if there is any effect on the cancer after being treated with antibiotics and pembrolizumab and if giving these medications before surgery would improve the outcome of cancer treatment.
