Abstract 3096


Treatment options for pts with LAPC are limited. In the phase 3 MPACT trial, nab-P + G treatment (Tx) resulted in a > 3-fold reduction in primary pancreatic tumor burden vs G in pts with metastatic PC, suggesting that the regimen may be effective in LAPC. Interim efficacy and safety results from the international, multicenter, prospective phase 2 LAPACT trial are presented.


During induction, treatment-naive pts with unresectable LAPC and ECOG PS ≤ 1 received 6 cycles of nab-P 125 mg/m2 + G 1000 mg/m2 on D 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle. After induction, pts without PD or unacceptable AEs were eligible for the investigator’s choice (IC) of continued Tx with nab-P + G, chemoradiation (CRT), or surgery. Surgery could occur prior to completing 6 cycles if the investigator deemed a sufficient tumor response. The primary endpoint was TTF. A secondary endpoint was disease control rate (DCR = CR, PR, and SD [≥ 16 weeks]) in pts who completed induction and had ≥ 1 postbaseline assessment. Data for pts who received their first dose of Tx by Oct 1, 2016 are reported.


A total of 101 pts with LAPC received nab-P + G induction. Median age was 65 years (range, 42-85), and median time from primary diagnosis to first dose was 27 days. Pts received a median of 5 Tx cycles (range, 1-6). A total of 60 patients (59%) completed induction. Among 93 evaluable patients, the DCR was 82% (76/93; PR, n = 33; SD ≥ 16 wks, n = 43); 12 pts had SD 


The reported DCR of 82% and PR rate of 35% for nab-P + G are promising, and there were no new safety signals compared with previous studies. These interim results suggest that nab-P + G is an appropriate LAPC Tx. NCT02301143.
