|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01521702|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : January 31, 2012
Last Update Posted : March 20, 2015
The aim of this study is to test the additional value of neoadjuvant chemotherapy to the standard treatment for resectable pancreatic cancer (surgery + adjuvant chemotherapy).
This study will be performed in compliance with the study protocol, GCP (good clinical practice) and the applicable regulatory requirements.

|Official Title:||Adjuvant Gemcitabine Versus NEOadjuvant Gemcitabine/Oxaliplatin Plus Adjuvant Gemcitabine in Resectable PAncreatic Cancer: a Randomized Multicenter Phase III Study|
|Study Start Date :||December 2011|
|Primary Completion Date :||February 2015|
|Study Completion Date :||February 2015|
Experimental: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy
After initial staging laparoscopy, Neoadjuvant chemotherapy consists of four bi-weekly cycles of gemcitabine (intravenous infusion of 1000mg/m2 over 30 minutes) and oxaliplatin (intravenous infusion of 100mg/m2 over 2 hours, modified from the Louvet protocol11).
Drug: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy
four bi-weekly cycles of gemcitabine (intravenous infusion of 1000mg/m2 over 30 minutes) and oxaliplatin (intravenous infusion of 100mg/m2 over 2 hours,
Active Comparator: surgery
Procedure: surgery and Adjuvant chemotherapy
surgery and Adjuvant chemotherapy must be started within eight weeks after surgery and is based on the standard regimen using six cycles of gemcitabine (Gem 1000mg/m2 over 30 minutes) on days 1, 8, 15 every 4 weeks.
