Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival rate at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Throughout treatment period and post-treatment every 2 months until death, or subject discontinues the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Throughout treatment period or post-treatment every 2 months until disease progression or death, respectively, or subject discontinues the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in level of serum tumor marker CA 19-9 [ Time Frame: Week 1, Week 4, Week 7 and every 3 weeks during the extended treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of anti-AGS-1C4D4 antibody formation [ Time Frame: Week 1, Week 7 and every 8 weeks during the extended treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Objective Response Rate (Partial Response or better per RECIST criteria version 1.1 [ Time Frame: Week 8, and every 8 weeks during the extended treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disease Control (Stable Disease or better per RECIST criteria) [ Time Frame: Week 8, and every 8 weeks during the extended treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1. Gemcitabine monotherapy Biological: Gemcitabine
IV infusion
Experimental: 2. Gemcitabine plus AGS-1C4D4 Biological: AGS-1C4D4
IV infusion
Biological: Gemcitabine
IV infusion

Detailed Description:

A disease assessment will be performed at study week 8 (± 3 days) by the investigator. The assessment will be based both on changes in clinical symptoms, and radiographic images. Subjects without evidence of disease progression may continue to receive treatment based on their original treatment assignment until disease progression or intolerability. Disease assessments will be performed every 8 weeks during the extended period. A safety follow-up visit will occur 4 weeks after the last dose infusion of AGS-1C4D4 and/or gemcitabine.

Post-Treatment: Subjects terminating from protocol therapy for reasons unrelated to documented disease progression will be followed by telephone contact every 2 months until they begin a new anticancer therapy, their disease progresses, they die, become lost to follow-up or withdrawal consent for further follow-up, whichever of these events occurs first.

Overall survival: All subjects will be followed by telephone contact every 2 months until death, loss to follow-up, or withdrawal of consent, whichever of these events occurs first.
