Basic Information

Recruitment status Recruiting
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedInvasive ductal carcinoma of the pancreas
Date of first enrollment25/05/2022
Target sample size24
Countries of recruitment
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)modified FOLFIRINOX with concurrent radiation therapy: The standard biweekly regimen of modified FOLFIRINOX is initiated with concurrent radiation therapy (1.8 gy, 29 fractions with total radiation dose of 50.4Gy). The dose of CPT-11 is increased according to the preplanned criteria as phase I setting.


Primary OutcomeDose limiting toxicity
Secondary Outcome1) 1) Overall survival. 2) Alteration of tumor markers (CA19-9, DUPAN-II, or CEA) during chemoradiation therapy. 3) radiographic response (RECIST criteria). 4) Resection rate. 5) Pathological margin. 6) Recurrence-free survival. 7) Distant disease-free survival. 8) Local failure-free survival. 9) Treatment-related mortality or non-hematologic al toxicity with grade 4 or more. 10) Relative dose intensity of each chemotherapeutic agent. 11) Incidence of adverse events. 12) Postoperative complications (resected cases). 13) Details of the post-treatment after CRT.
