The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of the GEMOX treatment as 1st line therapy in patients with advanced biliary tract cancer based on response rate measured by the RECIST unidimensional criteria.

Secondary objectives are : Progression free survival, overall survival and safety.

Condition Intervention Phase

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicentre Phase II Trial of Gemcitabine and Oxaliplatin (GEMOX) in Patients With Biliary Tract Cancer

Enrollment: 67
Study Start Date: April 2003
Study Completion Date: September 2006
Primary Completion Date: September 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
  • Histologically proven, locally advanced or metastatic carcinoma of the biliary tract (gallbladder, intrahepatic bile ducts, extrahepatic bile ducts, ampula of Vater)
  • For intrahepatic bile ducts, if the diagnosis of biliary tract origin is not evident by imaging or surgical exploration, and so equivalent to liver metastasis with unknown primary site, inclusion is possible if:

    • unknown primary after an exhaustive search for the primary site (chest radiography- , thoracic and abdomino pelvic CT scan, colonoscopy, oesogastroduodenal endoscopy, PSA determination for men or mammography for women, and PET scan if possible).
    • histological examination compatible with adenocarcinoma of bile ducts with the immunostaining expression of cytokeratin : 7+, 20- and 19 +. (Shimonishi, 2000 ^22)
  • No prior chemotherapy for advanced disease (first line)
  • No radiation therapy within 4 weeks prior to the first gemcitabine administration.
  • Unidimensionally measurable disease.
  • For female patient of childbearing potential, neither pregnant nor breastfeeding, and under active contraception
  • No known allergy to one of the study drugs
  • No prior malignancy
  • No CNS metastases
  • No peripheral neuropathy > grade 2
  • ECOG PS <=2
  • ANC > 1.5 X 10^9 /L
  • Platelets > 100 X 10^9 /L
  • Creatinine < 1.5 x ULN
  • SGPT (ALT) < 5 x ULN
  • Bilirubin < 2.5 x ULN (patients with jaundice or evidence of bile duct obstruction and in whom the biliary tree can be decompressed by endoscopic percutaneous endoprothesis, with subsequent reduction in bilirubin < 2.5 x ULN will be eligible for the study).
