Brief Summary:
This is a phase 1b/2 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of NANT-008 in combination with 5-fluorouracil, bevacizumab, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin in patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Metastatic Drug: NANT-008 Drug: Fluorouracil Injectable Product Drug: Avastin Injectable Product Drug: Leucovorin Calcium Injection Drug: Eloxatin Injectable Product Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Phase 1b is designed to evaluate the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of NANT-008 and dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) of NANT-008 in combination with metronomic 5-FU, bevacizumab, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin in subjects with advanced metastatic pancreatic carcinoma. In phase 2, subjects will receive the combination of RP2D of NANT-008 from phase 1b in combination with metronomic 5-FU, bevacizumab, leucovorin, and oxaliplatin. Phase 2 is designed to evaluate the efficacy of the tested regimen as assessed by 1-year survival rate in subjects with advanced metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
