Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains a dreadful disease due to its often advanced stage at diagnosis and poor sensitivity to chemotherapy. A locally unresectable tumor (locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC)) is present in 30% of the cases and is defined as a surgically unresectable tumor encasing the adjacent arteries [celiac axis, superior mesenteric artery (SMA)]. In these patients, chemotherapy has been the standard treatment for decades, optionally combined with radiotherapy. The results of small randomized trials comparing chemoradiotherapy with chemotherapy of patients with LAPC are divergent. Considering the emerging role of the tumor microenvironment (TME), the combination of checkpoint blocking antibodies with agents that target the inhibitory effects of the TME could lead to better responses in tumor historically resistant to checkpoint blocking antibody approaches. Furthermore, the addition of standard-of-care chemotherapy could further potentiate the anti-tumor effects of immunotherapy approaches by reducing the tumor burden, exposing antigens, and directly affecting the immunosuppressive TME compartment.
To explore the safety and synergy of the proposed combinatorial approach, participants with locally advanced PC will receive nivolumab and ipilimumab administered in combination with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel followed by immune-chemoradiation.

|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||February 2023|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||February 2024|
Nivolumab 3 mg/kg will be given on day 1 (± 2 days) of each 28-day treatment cycle until the progression of disease, discontinuation due to toxicity, withdrawal of consent. Ipilimumab 1 mg/kg will be given once only on day 1 cycle 1. Nivolumab will be administered as an IV infusion over 30 (± 5) minutes and then, after a 30 minutes rest period, ipilimumab will be administered as an IV infusion over 30 (± 5) minutes. Pre-medication for chemotherapy (based on standard-of-care and local institutional standards) and chemotherapy will then be administered after a further 30 minutes rest period.
The recommended dose of nab-paclitaxel is 100 mg/m2 administered as an IV infusion over 30 to 40 minutes on Days 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle. Gemcitabine 800 mg/m2 will be administered over 30 to 40 minutes immediately after nab-paclitaxel on Days 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle.
800 mg/m2 Day 1, 8, 15: Q4W IV Infusion
