Results First Posted : December 12, 2016
Last Update Posted : December 12, 2016
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if dalteparin can lower the risk of VTE occurring in the legs and lungs. This will be tested in patients with pancreatic cancer who are going to receive chemotherapy. Some patients will receive dalteparin and some will receive no study drug.
The safety of dalteparin will also be studied.

- Number of Participants With Venous Thromboembolic Events (VTE) [ Time Frame: 16 weeks of treatment ]Venous thromboembolism (VTE) defined by both symptomatic and asymptomatic VTE which includes deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) through clinical assessments and radiologic studies. All patients undergo bilateral lower extremity ultrasound every 2 months while on study (total of 3 exams including pre-randomization). VTE requires imaging documentation to evaluate use of prophylactic anticoagulation in reducing the occurrence of VTE in a patient population with a known high risk of VTE.
