|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pancreatic Cancer||Drug: CABOZANTINIB Drug: gemcitabine||Phase 1|
Preclinical work at the University of Michigan has demonstrated that inhibition of c-Met with cabozantinib prevented the development of metastatic disease in an intra-cardiac injection model in NOD/SCID mice. Additionally, the combination of cabozantinib and gemcitabine demonstrated improved tumor control compared to either agent alone in a relevant orthotopic implantation mouse model.
Combining gemcitabine with the c-Met inhibitor cabozantinib in advanced pancreatic cancer is a novel strategy that takes advantage of an established cytotoxic agent with one that targets a pathway known to be important for the growth, dissemination, and resistance of this disease.

|Official Title:||A Trial of Cabozantinib (XL184) and Gemcitabine in Advanced Pancreatic Cancer|
|Study Start Date :||July 2012|
|Primary Completion Date :||January 2015|
Experimental: cabozantinib with gemcitabine
The Study Treatment Period will consist of continued treatment during which time patients will receive cabozantinib and gemcitabine until either disease progression or the occurrence of unacceptable drug-related toxicity
Daily oral cabozantinib administered days -7 until disease progression, intolerable adverse event(s) or patient choice.
Other Name: XL184Drug: gemcitabine
Gemcitabine administered intravenously on days 1, 8, and 15 every 28 days.
Other Name: Gemzar
- Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 5 weeks ]The MTD is defined at the highest dose level at which ≤25% of patients experience a dose-limiting toxicity (DLT).
- Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: day-7 of cycle 1 until PD or death ]Progression-free survival (PFS, a secondary endpoint) will be calculated from day-7 of cycle 1 of study treatment, until documented disease progression or death
