Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to find the safest dose and identify any bad side effects of EGFR-BATs (bispecific antibody-armed activated T cells) for people with advanced pancreatic cancer who have already received first-line standard chemotherapy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma
Participants have metastatic pancreatic cancer who have received at least first line chemotherapy and have disease progression during or within 6 months of treatment.
Drug: anti-EGFR-bispecific antibody armed activated T-cells

Phase I:

  • First 3 participants, twice weekly infusions of 10^10 EGFR BATs infusions
  • If there is toxicity in 0 or 1 of 3 participants, 3 additional participants will be added to the dose level of up to 10^10.
  • If >/= 2 of 6 participants experience DLTs, then the dose will be reduced to 7.5 x 10^9 per infusion
  • If only 0 or 1 participants has toxicity in the first 6, then the study will proceed to enroll in the expansion cohort

Expansion cohort:

- 8 infusions of 7.5 x 10^9 or 10^10 EGFR BATs in 22 evaluable participants (including the 6 participants treated at the maximum tolerated dose in Phase I)

Other Name: EGFR BATs

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate toxicity [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    The NCI CTEP CTCAE v4.0 will be used.
