Brief Summary:
This pancreatic cancer registry aims to collect information on people around the world who select focused ultrasound (FUS) as part of their treatment for pancreatic cancer to learn about the performance of the focused ultrasound technology and health outcomes; the impact of focused ultrasound on your overall health; and provide an understanding of the current care for pancreatic cancer.

Condition or disease
Pancreatic Cancer

Detailed Description:

The purpose of the registry is to collect data on the performance of the focused ultrasound (FUS) technology and health outcomes. A wide variety of approaches exist for using FUS on pancreatic cancer patients, and the primary goal is to capture this broad spectrum of approaches and their impact on patients overall health. This information will help provide a better understanding of current care, and may possibly direct further, more specific investigations that will follow this registry. After obtaining informed consent a baseline history, physical examination, laboratory studies, and imaging studies needed per standard of care will be performed. Patients' treatment is determined by their caregivers only, and thus the registry will evaluate patient management in "real-world" conditions.

Enrollment Goal: 100

Primary Outcomes: Pain related to pancreatic cancer, Objective response, Progression-free and overall survival, Performance Status, Clinical Benefit Response (CBR), Health-related quality of life

Pancreatic Cancer Participants
No intervention will be administered. Assessments are performed as standard of care.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Time until the occurence of death

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Pain Related to Pancreatic Cancer [ Time Frame: Day 7, Day 14, Day 30, Day 60, Day 90, Every 90 days thereafter through survival, up to 36 months ]
    The proportion achieving a 2 point reduction or greater will be assessed at each time point and across time using the Brief Pain Inventory (Short Form). Pain will be rated from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as a bad as can imagine) .

  2. Performance Status [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 30, Day 60, Day 90, Every 90 days thereafter through survival, up to 36 months ]
    Improvement in performance status for a period of at least 4 consecutive weeks without showing any sustained worsening.

  3. Clinical Benefit Response (CBR) [ Time Frame: Day 7, Day 14, Day 30, Day 60, Day 90, Every 90 days thereafter through survival, up to 36 months ]
    The proportion of participants with a CBR will be measured at each follow-up time point.

  4. Impact on Quality of Life and Cost [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 1, Day 7, Day 14, Day 30, Day 60, Day 90, Every 90 days thereafter through survival, up to 36 months ]
    Standardized instrument to measure of health-related quality of life.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Hematology, serum chemistry and tumor histology will be performed.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The registry population will be drawn from patients who have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and are eligible for FUS therapy. Participants are allowed to receive standard-of-care treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and best supportive care. Participants being treated in another FUS clinical trial may be included in this registry.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of signed and dated informed consent form
  • Stated willingness to comply with all registry procedures and availability for the duration of the registry
  • Histology proven pancreatic carcinoma in any area of pancreas
  • Pancreatic tumor that can be treated by FUS
  • Willingness and ability to complete follow-up interviews

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any disease, condition or surgery which would result in a contraindication to undergoing FUS therapy.
  • Clinical trials of pancreatic cancer not of focused ultrasound or related activities
  • Other non-pancreatic cancer clinical trials
