Brief Summary:
This study assessed the feasibility and effects of an early integrative supportive care program in patient with Advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (aPDAC).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreas Management Supportive Care Program Procedure: Integrative supportive care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Two-step cohort study:

* Step 1 : A 14-day integrative supportive care program initiated as early as the clinical suspicion of aPDAC.

According to the investigator's assessment of patient needs, this integrative supportive care program will include:

  • management of pain
  • nutritional support
  • pathologic diagnosis (endoscopy guides or percutaneous biopsies or ascitis cytology)
  • diagnostic computed imaging
  • endoscopic stenting of the bile duct and/or duodenum

    * Step 2 : Follow up after the integrative supportive care program. According to their Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status(ECOG PS) and/or chemotherapy

  • Group 1 : Patient becoming eligible for treatment with FOLFIRINOX or nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine and / or clinical trial
  • Group 2 :Patient at the end of the 14-day program (Step 1) remaining with either :

a - Persisting ECOG PS ≥ 2

b - Clinico-biological features that make them ineligible to receive the FOLFIRINOX or nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine regimens

c - Patient ineligible to other therapeutic clinical trial

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 110 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
Official Title: Management of Symptomatic Advanced Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma: "Urgence Pancreas" - A Prospective A.R.CA.D Cohort Study
Study Start Date : November 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Integrative Supportive Care
All planed procedures established during the first consultation with the investigator is successfully completed within the 14-day (+/-2 days)
Procedure: Integrative supportive care

At the inclusion, the investigator determine a personalized program of supportive care procedures for each patient (for instance : treatment of pain and nutritional support,stenting of bile duct and/or duodenum, tumor biopsy for pathologic diagnosis ,..)

At the end on the integrative supportive care, according to the ECOG-PS of patients , they will be classified into two groups:

  • Group 1 :Good prognosis - ECOG-PS 0-1 and eligible for clinical trial, FOLFIRINOX or gemcitabine + nab-paclitaxel.

Patient will be treated by : FOLFIRINOX or gemcitabine-nab-paclitaxel or clinical trial

- Group 2 : Poor prognosis - ECOG-PS 2-4 and / or ineligible for clinical trial, FOLFIRINOX or gemcitabine + nab-paclitaxel.

Patients will be treated by: FOLFOX7lightened

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. STEP 1 : Success rate (feasibility + clinical benefit) of the 14-day integrative supportive care program [ Time Frame: 14 days (+/- 2 days) ]
    Success of the integrative supportive care program following the first medical appointment in patients who have evocative symptom or pathologically confirmed symptomatic Advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (aPDAC)

  2. STEP 2 : 3-month Overall Survival rate [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months after the beginning of the chemotherapy ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Delay from first symptom of aPDAC to first medical appointment [ Time Frame: Up to 2-3 months ]
  2. Delay from first medical appointment to beginning of chemotherapy [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month ]
  3. Rate of patients improvement of ECOG PS and clinico-biologic parameters [ Time Frame: Up to 14-day ]
    for biologic : livers tests, including bilirubin

  4. Rate of patients receiving chemotherapy [ Time Frame: At 14 days, at 21 days, Up to death ]
  5. Type of chemotherapy administered [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days ]
    type of chemotherapy : FOLFIRINOX, nab-paclitaxel + gemcitabine, gemcitabine alone, FOLFOX7 light or only best supportive care

  6. Rate of patients included in a clinical trial [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days ]
  7. Comparison score of Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) [ Time Frame: Between the score of HRQoL before the program and the score of HRQoL at the end of the 14 days program ]
  8. Rate of patient included in each group [ Time Frame: up to two years (after the recruitment of all patients) ]
  9. Progression free survival in each group [ Time Frame: up to two years ]
  10. Overall survival in each group [ Time Frame: up to two years ]
  11. Score of HRQoL (QLQ-C15 PAL) [ Time Frame: Month 1 and every two months up to two years ]
