Open-label, uncontrolled, Phase I/II study to evaluate safety and efficacy of BAY86-9766 plus gemcitabine in locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Phase I: Dose escalation study investigating 20, 30 and 50 mg BAY86-9766 plus gemcitabine (1000mg/m2); determination of maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase 2 dose.

Phase II: Determination of response (RECIST 1.1; primary endpoint). Secondary endpoints: response duration, disease control rate, time to progression, progression-free survival, overall survival, safety and tolerability.

Tumor assessments at Screening and than every 8 weeks.; Safety evaluations at Screening and weekly throughout the study; Safety follow-up visit 30 days after the last dose of study treatment; Survival follow up monthly for up to 8 month after LPFV.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) of BAY86-9766 to be investigated in combination with the standard gemcitabine regimen in the subsequent Phase II part of this study [ Time Frame: 6 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Determine the efficacy of the combination BAY86-9766 / gemcitabine in terms of the best overall response rate (confirmed complete response + partial response) according to RECIST Version 1.1 [ Time Frame: 3 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Investigate the safety and tolerability and efficacy of up to three dose levels of BAY86-9766 in combination with the standard gemcitabine regimen [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Assess pharmacokinetics (PK) of gemcitabine and BAY86-9766; if needed, PK assessments may also [ Time Frame: 22 days after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Response duration (DOR) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine patient reported outcome (pain evaluation) [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess biomarkers [ Time Frame: 8 months after Last Patient First Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
