|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pancreatic Cancer||Drug: Gemcitabine Drug: Nab-paclitaxel Drug: Ficlatuzumab||Phase 1|
This research study is a Phase I dose-escalation clinical trial. It will test the safety and tolerability of an investigational drug ficlatuzumab when combined with Nab-paclitaxel and Gemcitabine, with the goal of determining the maximally tolerated dose of ficlatuzumab when combined with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel.
Ficlatuzumab is a type of drug called a "monoclonal antibody." It is thought to work by targeting hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) which is a HGF-c-Met inhibitor. The activation of the receptor tyroside kinase c-Met via its ligand, HGF, mediates proliferation, motility, and differentiation in a variety of cancers including pancreatic cancer.
Subjects must have a newly diagnosed stage 4 untreated metastatic pancreatic ductal cancer and meet all inclusion/exclusion criteria.
Treatment consists of 4 week treatment cycles. Ficlatuzumab will be administered on day 1 and 15 of each cycle. Nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine will be administered on days 1,8, and 15.
Subjects continue in study until disease progression, adverse event/toxicity, death or either the subject or sponsor discontinues the study.

Experimental: Ficlatuzumab + Gemcitabine and Nab-Paclitaxel
Gemcitabine is a chemotherapy agent. Chemotherapy agents are medicines that kill cancer cells.
Other Name: Gemzar
Nab-paclitaxel is a chemotherapy agent. Chemotherapy agents are medicines that kill cancer cells
Other Name: Abraxane
It is selective recombinant humanized hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) inhibitory immunoglobulin G subclass 1 monoclonal antibody which blocks the MET tyrosine kinase receptor.
- The Maximum Tolerated Dose of ficlatuzumab when administered in combination with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Identify maximally tolerated dose of ficlatuzumab when administered in combination with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel
- The response rate in this population of patients. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Determine the number of patients who demonstrate a clinical response assessed by RECIST criteria on imaging to the combination of ficlatuzumab with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel.
- The progression free survival in this population of patients. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Determine the progression free survival derived from the combination of ficlatuzumab with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel.
