Abstract 1902


mFOLFIRINOX and GEM are standard chemotherapy for pts with PDAC. This single-arm phase 2 trial assessed the efficacy and safety of perioperative chemotherapy consisted of preoperative mFOLFIRINOX and postoperative GEM in pts with BR/LA-PDAC.


Pts with histologically proven and radiologically confirmed BR/LA-PDAC as defined by NCCN criteria were eligible. Pts received 8 cycles of preoperative mFOLFIRINOX (oxaliplatin 85 mg/m2, irinotecan 180 mg/m2, 5-FU 2,400 mg/m2 over 46 hours, and leucovorin 400 mg/m2), every 2 weeks. For pts who underwent surgery, postoperative GEM (1,000 mg/m2 D1, 8, 15, every 4 weeks) was given for 6 cycles. Primary endpoint was 1-year progression-free survival (PFS) rate and secondary endpoints were PFS, overall survival (OS) and curative surgery rate. A total of 44 pts were required to show the improvement in 1-year PFS rates from 30% to 50% with a two-sided alpha of 0.05, beta of 0.8 and drop-out rates of 10%.


Between May/2016 and Mar/2018, 44 patients were enrolled. Median age was 60 years (range, 35-76) and 26 pts (59%) were male. Pancreas head was most common site (n = 26, 59%), and 29 (66%) and 15 (34%) pts had BR- and LA-PDAC, respectively. With mFOLFIRINOX, response rate was 34% and surgery was done in 27 pts (61%); 22 and 5 pts achieved R0 and R1 resection, respectively, and postoperative GEM was given in 26 patients (96%). With median follow-up of 20.7 months (95% CI, 14.4-27.0), 1-year PFS rate was 52.0% (95% CI, 37.1-66.9), and 2-year OS rate was 49.8% (95% CI, 38.2-71.4). Median PFS and OS was 12.2 months (95% CI, 7.9-15.9), and 22.3 months (95% CI, 11.3-33.3), respectively. Median OS was significantly prolonged in pts who underwent surgery compared to those who did not (26.2 months [95% CI, 23.1-29.3] vs 9.0 months [95% CI, 6.6-11.4 months]; p < 0.001). For pts with surgery, R1 resection was significantly associated with poor postoperative OS compared to R0 resection (p = 0.04).


Perioperative chemotherapy using mFOLFIRINOX and GEM was feasible and effective for pts with BR/LA-PDAC.
