Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) as defined by the length of time that a patient survives without any signs or symptoms of that cancer or any other type of cancer [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • • The length of time from diagnosis (enrollment) to death [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • • Overall Survival rate defined by the % of people who are alive for a certain period of time after diagnosis [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • • R0 resection as defined as microscopically negative margins [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:
Patients with pancreas cancer will be enrolled and treated with a planned course of 6 cycles (3 months) of chemotherapy with FOLFIRINOX prior to undergoing surgical resection.

  • 0 - Asymptomatic (Fully active, able to carry on all predisease activities without restriction)
  • 1 - Symptomatic but completely ambulatory (Restricted in physically strenuous activity but ambulatory and able to carry out work of a light or sedentary nature. For example, light housework, office work)

  • Significant cardiac disease as defined as New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification III or IV, uncontrolled congestive heart failure (CHF), or prior myocardial infarction (MI) last 6-months
  • Any prior gastrointestinal (GI) disease or history of prior pelvic or abdominal radiation which in the opinion of the investigator may place the patient at increased risk
  • Peripheral sensory neuropathy ≥ to grade 2 at baseline
